I picked up an otto a couple of days ago. I'm nervous because I read they are very sensitive, so I'm watching him very closely. One concern that I had read about was that they are essentially starving at the LFS
, and if they starve long enough either in transport to the store, or at the store, the good bacteria in their gut die out and they are unable to digest their food. He's been eating ok so far (his belly is full of dark green goodness now)...one thing I noticed as that he was pooping when I got him home - is it safe to assume that he was pretty well fed if he was pooing freely?
Also, to ottos have any other special needs aside from standard care? I know that if he runs out of algae (not in my tank!), I should give him zucchini or algae pellets. I wasn't able to find tons of info online, so I need to rely on your expertise.
