ProD... Make sure still feed a thin slice of veggie to your oto, just in case he doesn't like the algae in your tank. You want to try to fatten up any new otos. I heard they don't get enough food during shipping and a lot of them die quick in tanks due to hunger.
mine is pretty small.i just have 1 for now.im told they need to be with others.but now really sure.i have very low light in my tank rite now to help control the algae and allow the fish to adjust.but not sure if i should up the light again tomorrow or leave it low to help kill off algae..
i just so happen to do last minute research on snails and then i seen the ph and was like never mind.my other fish can handle it.i just dont wana have to worry bout keeping it at 8 or so though my water is 7.6ph out the faucet.so im very close..
im glad u told me about fattening him up.i unfortunately dont have any zucchini and not sure when i can get any.my tep mom is filipina o she uses a lot of vegie to cook.not sure what ele to feed my oto.i do have algae wafers.but read they normally ignore it.though i have tons of algae.i keep checking on him about every 30 minutes..
any alternatives to what i can feed him?i surly dont want him to die.he was 2 dollars at my LPS.even then no matter the price i still dont want any of my fish to die.
