YAY!!! Finally got my Oto cats!

Seems like I've been waiting forever to get them...but I think it's only been 3 weeks or less ...

...but I did get them today...they're very VERY small...so they have some growing to do...hopefully the 6 of them all survive... I wouldn't have taken 6 though, if they weren't so very small...

I forgot to pick up some algae wafers...but there's enough algae in the tank to tide them over for a few days I'd think...I can also leave the algae in place for them when I do my water change (this weekend)...

And that's it until we get the big tank up and running...now I'm definately overstocked!

Might mean some more frequent water changes for a while, but that's okay too ...

Fishkeeping wish: That every betta sold finds himself at least a 5g tank...

Wanting better for bettas...

Yes, I found that very few people know about them and that they're not stocked all the time...

The irony of the name is in the fact that they do NOT eat algae, and are not from China. :o
