He should eat just about anything, mix it up with different fresh/frozen foods (bloodworms, brine shrimp, etc) and a quality flake food.

I haven't had a chance to try this but you could try attaching java moss to some of that plastic cross-stitch stuff (I'm not sure what it's called exactly but it's basically a plastic grid) and...

Let the parents raise them. Put a stocking or spong over the filter intake too so none of them get sucked up. Also, you may want to consider feeding them some sort of fry food like Hikari First Bites...

Ottos do fine with a little salt (1 tbsp per 5g) as do most fish (even scaleless). Just don't add all the salt at once, i'd gradually bring up the salinity by adding half the salt one day and add...

I wouldn't do guppies because they will breed and lead to problems but you could do something like 5 neons and 3 pygmy cory cats but not more than that.

I've never noticed this behavior in my plecos but it sounds like he's flushing out his gills or something. Could be a sign or irritation but probably nothing to be worried about unless he does it all...

Um i don't see how Pimafix would help treat a parasitic infection like ich, it's an anti-fungal medication. Oh and just because something is all natural doesn't mean it can't harm anything, it's...

HMm the fry look like convicts but it's not unusual for the fry of some species to look different than the mature adults. What kind of fish did your friend have? That would help narrow it down.

Ask the LFS if they will set aside a pair of them for you for like a week and if they are still alive at the end of the week I'd get them. Also you might want to ask what the water parameters are at...
