My little otos!

Got 5 of these guys a week ago and they were quite emaciated. Now they are nice and plump and more active than ever. They've also grown each about a quarter of an inch.
I love them very much and they are some of the most personable fish I've ever had. Sorry for the low quality camera, it doesn't do close ups very well.

Nice fish. What do you feed them? Steroids? 1/4 inch in a week?

I think they enjoy eachothers company and if you get just one you won't really see a huge impact but I don't think I would categorize them as schooling fish at all

Yah 1/4 of an inch, I think they just looked smaller because they were starving in the LFS' tank. They don't really school until they get hungry. Then they chase each other around until they are full which is really fun to watch. I'll get more pictures later after a PWC.

Yep, I got them at half off, 1USD each. I went back to the LFS a day ago and the clerk there had the nerve to say "They died already?". I was about a millimeter away from saying back to him "Just because you can't keep fish alive here doesn't mean I can't myself" but I restrained myself. Here's a pic of one on some DHG ;it looks like a female by it's girth.
