I was in the next town over (about 20 minutes) away from my house but i usually don't go to said town because it's ridiculously high crime rate. Anywho, some friends had been telling me a store in said town had a really good fish selection in which they always buy their fish due to the good health etc. So i decided to stop in and they had a pretty big group of Oto's which I had been hoping to buy for awhile. All of them in the tank seemed to have rounded belly's of some proportion or another so i figured I should take my chances. I had been testing my water params after finishing treating ich last week and everything was finally sitting normal again at 0 ammonia 0 nitrite and 10-20 nitrate. I got 2 of the little guys. When they finally were in my tank they went straight to the brown algae on the back of my glass and air tube. I have plenty of brown algae going around on my glass and various ornaments but bought some hikari wafers just in case. I have to say, these guys are little houdini's though and have quite a good dissapearing act. Just thought i'd share and ask if anyone has any advice on keeping the little fellas.
