Can't use those..: my mollies and Berta chow down instantly... I've even put in 5-6 an all gone within 20 mins.

I can use blanched veggies... The others eat those too but some are still left in the morning. I put in 6 slices in the past..

I just saw my Oto CHASING my smaller Black Molly, Vixen! I've never seen this before! Is it a sign she's stressed by being the only Oto in the tank and need to make getting her a few friends a priority? Or maybe the Molly was picking on her and she was giving the Molly a run for her money...?!

There's room.... Just haven't gone yet this week to get 3-4 more. Been hectic with one if my dogs at the vet last week.

29g--

4 mollies, 1 Betta, 1 Oto & 3 Ghost Shrimp

Nice to know it appears to be normal behavior

I went and got 7 Otos today! On sale as usual for $1 each!

2 went in my 29g to join my solo Oto... Bringing it up to 3...
3 went in my 20g L
2 went in my 10g with my male Betta...

I'm keeping an eye on the Betta making sure he plays nice!

Pic! One of the new Otos in my 20g With my 4 mth old baby platy Chip ... 1/2"...

I didn't fully realize how much waste Otos produce! I know they're constantly eating, but I suppose I just didnt think about it much.
I have been cleaning my Betta tank weekly and there were only a few poos in there from him until I put the two Otos in with him... Now I think I may up his PWC to twice a week! The gravel was full of it... Just flew up the intake tube!
