Excellent pics of some excellent creatures, Daniel. Your farlowella looks like a female. I have a pair and am in the process of organizing and cateloguing all my fish pics...will post comparison photos soon if possible. BTW, that "Otocinclus niger" is more likely to be Hisonotus (Otocinclus) leucofrenatus. I have these in my tank, and the manager of my LFS and I ID'ed it using Baensch's photo atlas, and the Hisonotus was a better match. I'm not even sure Otocinclus niger is a valid scientific name, but I can't confirm that. Anyhoo, keep those pictures coming...they're great!

PS What camera are you using?

Thanks for the information on the fish. I was pretty sure that otocinclus niger wasn't their scientific name. That was just the description of the fish they had at my LFS. I'll make the correction on my website as well. How do you sex the farlowella cats? I have two. The other one is more camera shy... Here's the best picture I could get of him (her?)

Most of my aquarium photographs are taken with a Nikon Coolpix 995. If I feel like wasting film, I shoot with a Nikon N80 with a Sigma 105 F2.8 Macro lens and a SB 28 Flash. Some with tripod (no flash usually) and some handheld (Flash always). I work at a camera store, so I've been able to build up a nice collection of camera equipment that does not get used as much as it should. If anyone has camera question feel free to ask. I'll answer them as honestly as possible...
Daniel
