I am a very proud mummy. Three weeks ago, I acquired three very spritely otos for my tank. I had been toying with getting a bottom-feeder for a little while and after some research, decided on these guys.
I think I have been lucky! From the moment they went into the tank they have been acting really happy and showing no sign of shyness. They took care of the diatoms on every surface except the sand and left a ton of poop I had to clean up. These guys poop a lot!
And I didn't realise that they'd go through 2 slices of zucchini every 60 hours. You'd swear this is all they're eating
All in all, I think that they all acclimated really well and the harlequins and scissortails are leaving them alone.
I've tried to get some photos, but I'm struggling. I'll keep trying. Here's one.
And I haven't posted a full tank shot in a while. So here's one.
