With all their poop? God no. I've seen a great improvement since the oto was put in for algea, but the snails have just made filth.

I agree with DB on the snails and poop. They make the tank SOOOO dirty.

+1 on that. Snails poop a LOT. They are the goldfish of aquatic inverts. Have you tried a trap? Sink some cucumber or broccoli (the stem not the dark green florets) at night and in the morning it should be covered in them but you have to keep the tank covered or get up before the sun because they will go and hide more when light comes. You can fish out the leftover bait and have a lot of snails with it.

Ugh, one of the big!boys(?) has a definitive dip in his spine. If he was a guppy I'd cull him a heart beat, but I'm going to try to find him a forever home. He's very active, very full (obviously, one of the bigger ones), and I was always sure I had a harder heart than this.

Can anybody pinpoint usually when spinal issues start popping up and what causes them? I suspect it could be a possible result of nutrient deficiency not being fed enough of a varied diet. A second possibility I was think was due to uneven growth rates associated with high fluctuations in temps. If I recall correctly the last time I did bettas, the issues started around week 3-4. Does anybody else have any idea?

No idea. Admittedly the first theory might have merit. The temp in that tank has been deep-crust steady the whole time, so I don't think that's it.

:( Good luck with finding a home for him. Genetic issues might cause it, I would think.

I hope so. He's enjoying the heck out of life, chasing skuds around the bottom of the tank (think he'll be the first to eat those when he's bigger). Got a few mom's around here I know who might take him him.

That's good. I would think it'd be easier to cull ones that are smaller and young when they haven't grown on you as much.
