So this is where I am at now. =) The lights were changed today and as I am planning to do some aquascaping and add more plants I decided a journal may be in order! Will try and update each time something happens. :)

Your log is lovely and detailed. Are you cohabitating the male with females with the intent to breed, or because due to some quirk of personality it was necessary?
A bit of both, really! :) I was initially planning to only introduce the females for breeding, so we floated them in the big tank to see which was more interested in him, and then we were giunna move him to the 15ltr tank before releasing the girls. But, as he was behaving we let them out to see how we could expect them to behave together... and he was great so we left them a few days. When we got female 3 and the one that turned out to be a male we seperated Yoshio, but him and one female didnt eat while he was out for all that time. So once we determined the other was a male, they swapped. Now we have 5 happy bettas. Yoshio with his girls, the otos and the gourami, and little Keiji lives alone.
And I just realised I missed the Otocynlus catfish from my log! :(

Reason: grammar issues.
ADDED to tank: 7 otocynclus catfish on 26-AUG-14. Just missed them out somehow. They are called Jones 513, Jones 716, Jones, Jones, Jones & Jones (C Company Jones's) and Dutchy. ;P ~~ ("I am Jones from Bwlchgwyn, he is Jones from Builth Wells, and there are four more Joneses in C Company! Confusing, isn't it, Dutchy?")
