My trip to Spokane

I went to Spokane, WA for Thanksgiving with my dad. We hit 3 aquarium stores and I spent about $80. This it what I got:
Black worm culture
Vinegar eel culture
15 ghost shrimp
3 otos
1 HM male
1 CT female
20 gal long
Omega 1 Betta Buffet flakes
I added all the new fish plus my sorority and my 1 oto that I already had to the 20 gal. Most of the ghost shrimp are missing heads but the new otos formed a
pack and are doing well. The new girl is a real scaredy cat though... She is also unnamed. The male, Dragon is in a divided 10 gal with Fuji, my VT. I'm pretty sure Dragon is a dragon scale but I'll post pictures for confirmation later. Pics to come soon!

5 gallon
One betta
10 gallon
Two bettas, divided
Three mystery snails
20 gallon
Seven female bettas
Four oto cats
Five juvenile female guppies
One goldfish (temporary)
29 gallon
One dwarf gourami
Six tiger barbs

27 fish....

Waiiit, if the ghost shrimp don't have heads, doesn't that mean they kinda sorta aren't alive?

Oh. So you didn't buy them headless. They became headless later.

LOL. I'm sure your girls enjoyed their shrimp scampi, anyway. Fortunately, ghost shrimp are cheap.

I hope you put the oto in a mature tank. They feed on algae constantly or if no algae I feed them cucumbers. I also drip acclimate the otos for about hour.
