Lightbulb Join me through the journey of introduction!

We just picked up our 5 Otos today and they are acclimating to the water now. I've left Scarlett in the tank so she can see them and see how the reacts to them in their bag.
In a minute I'm going to remove Scarlett from the tank and add the Otos. I'm going to give them time to get used to the tank and all that's in it. After awhile I'll reintroduce Scarlett to the tank. At that point I will be watching closely.
Wish me luck and I'll keep you updated (good and bad) on how it goes. Let's hope she doesn't mind these little guys.

I think thats a good idea to let her see them before you actually put them together.

Well, they are being really active! I didn't think they were THAT active. I hope they chill out soon, because I don't know how she'll take them swimming about like that.
On another note, I'm loving watching them swim around, they are so neat!

Alright, I'm acclimating Scarlett to the tank now. She seems them and is trying to swim towards them (with no avail since she is in a cup!)

She is now in the tank with them. So far she has noticed them and has gone right up to them, looked, and swam away. Is this normal behavior? Does this mean she will probably be okay with them?

She started nipping at the algae wafer I put in for the Otos. What a weird little girl.

No I think they were peppered. I wasn't sure, it just said cory cats. But they were adorable. And they had some like one inch neon tetras that I wanted really bad too.

I haven't seen otos before but I like cories. If I was ever going to keep other fish, I'd like to have cories. Or maybe otos, now! lol
