Hello seasoned fishkeepers,
I have had no luck with internet searches and would love any advice.
Two weeks ago I discovered 7 otocinclus fry in my tank!
I had noticed one of the otos looked pregnant previously but all of my internet searches said that otos very rarely breed in captivity and/or the fry do not usually survive. I left the fry in the tank, added a little extra algae, and figured I would be watching Darwin's theory in action.
Fast forward two weeks and all 7 of the little guys are thriving. They are about a centimeter long and very active. (The adults are about 3 centimeters.)
When do I need to 're-home' the fry? I have been doing extra water changes to avoid waste overload from the additional fish and everyone seems happy so far.
Thanks to anybody with ideas!
