Oh really? I think I need to make a trip to the grocery store tomorrow. :)
I don't blame them though, Zucchini is some tasty stuff!

Oh, and two of them were feasting on a wafer earlier today. I didn't put one in tonight since they have fat bellies and seem to be doing well, plus I didn't want such a dirty tank. Well, of course one of the Otos (I'm assuming the one that figured out the wafers quick) was looking for the wafer tonight. I feel like a jerk, but I would rather get them something less messy.

Ugh, I think we are going to lose another Oto. Hubby was trying to net them so I could 50% the tank today. One was a little trouble and I think he might have squished him on accident. I see some internal bleeding on his tummy. I feel TERRIBLE about this, and he feels even worse.
I don't think he'll make it, but I'm hoping on it. I'm thinking I'll keep him in a 1/2 gallon and trying to give him some food tonight. I want to at least let him pass on a full belly, if he wants to eat that is.

You may want to buy one of these. They call it The Biorb & Biube cleaner pump. Petsmart has it for around $10.00. I use it on all my tanks that have small fish, so I can leave them in the tank during water changes and do not have to worry about sucking them up. The guard lets dirt in, but keeps the fish out. The pump is a great water flow starter as well.

I have one of those pumps. I just thought adding new water and then the conditioner would hurt them more then me fishing them out to do all of that.

I have a 5 gal bucket that I use to mix the declorinator and tap water, then add it to the tank.
None of my fish seem to stressed about it. The bettas really seem to enjoy it.
Sorry about your oto as well, they are not easy fish to catch. I would try leaving them in during the next water change, and see how it goes.
