Tanks looking good, all fish are behaving themselves well apart from to Otocinclus may have been getting a little jiggy with it. Looks like I have a fat Otto or pregnant.
If she is them the problem arises of what to do. I have only one fish in my tank that could possibly eat the fry and that's my dwarf puffer, I don't think neon and lemon tetra will eat them, not sure about the Dwarf gourami either. I don't really have the space for a nursery tank.
I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. I'm chuffed if she's pregnant but I wont be able to protect the fry, the plants are coming on well so there will be some hiding for the fry. But then again I don't want to be over run with baby Otto's. I'm so hoping she's fat. Only time will tell.
well 2 weeks nearly up since start of white spot so temperature going back down in tank. May leave it mid 20's as fish are more active and I seem to have avoided an algae bloom, looks like my shrimp, snails, Otto's and bristle noses are doing there job.
My little boy is loving the tank, its just at the right height for him to look in at the fish. When I'm doing anything with the tank he's there trying to help and watch his dad. At only 19month I think he has a while to go to help out but he does help feed every now and then.
I personally like watching them just as the light goes on in the morning, caught the Dwarf puffer eating snails one morning, its strange to watch its eyes moving independently to locate prey.
Money well spent I think.
