I've just read up on Otos again. It seems they are hard to care for (which I haven't read until now even after doing research). I guess we'll see. I guess Cories are hardier? I don't know. Four of them are doing great, however, one is a loner and isn't as vibrantly colored as the others. I'm wondering if this little guy is on his way out. :(
We really didn't get to choose the Otos, he just grabbed what he could.
Whenever they are on the side of the tank and get close to the top Scarlett goes near them and keeps looking up. It's as if she thinks they are going up for food and she is up there waiting on me to drop food in for her too. Haha!
I'm very proud of how well she is doing with them. I fed her while they were in there just to let her know she's still going to be fed!

I'm glad they're doing well together.

Me too. They really liven up the such a big tank with only one little girl. I cannot stop watching them all! :P

I thought I would post a quick pic of the new Otos. I only got 4 of them because the loner was on the other side of the tank.
Can you see them?

It was just one website I went to that said they were harder. I don't know, so far they are doing fine.
I think I'm going to get a veggie clip and some cucumber (what a lot of people have used) and feed them that along with the wafers.
Should be interesting!

Cool! What i read was that,the way they are caught in the wild makes it difficult to acclimate. If they appear chubby they have been eating well. The skinny ones tend to not make it. The first couple weeks are the key. If they make it that long,they will be around awhile. I read up on them too lol.

I saw many fat Otos in the tank, so I felt comfortable getting them. As I said before though, we didn't get to pick which ones we wanted. (I would have, but the guy working there was being a jerk).
