LadyKeiva, I was briefly thinking of Amanos because of how large they are, but with the info that yours attacked his I don't think I'm going to attempt it xD I'd be horrified if something happened. It's a shame I can't get like a tiny toy fake shrimp to test in the tank and see what she'd do....lmao.

Haha, JDM you're just lucky to have that awesome amazonian looking sand, I'd love to have that in my 20 long. I love all the different textures. But I also love how my black sand makes everything stand out, and it doesn't make the floor look so...empty when there's no plants in that area.

It actually wasn't so bad! If you're interested I can PM you play-by-play instructions, tips, etc. The biggest advice though is to go sloooooowwwllllyyy, like do a layer every half hour or so, so it has a chance to totally dry. It feels a bit weird on the tank, like one good razor blade tug could peel it right off, so that's something to look out for when moving the tank/installing stuff. I believe I read that after a week of 'curing' it won't be as likely to come off on accident.

Yeah I remember the tetra story ;( That was so sad. I didn't realize just how big their mouths are until she 'yawned' one day. I could easily see a betta swallowing a small fish now o.o

EDIT: I also LOVE how it makes the tank look, like it makes it look clean and polished. I think I might do the back of my 20 when it's done being used as a QT and will be transformed into a blackwater xD

Yeah, and it seems that mine didn't even do it out of hunger.. He just went hulk on it. I came home to find one of them dead with a huge chunk missing. I felt bad >,<. He had no interest the first few days.

I feel like she would probably do the same, she just seems a bit curiously destructive by nature xD

In other news, I've fallen in love with Oto cats. The LFS got a few in the other day and it was my first time seeing them in person. They are just the cutest little guys ever, and as much as I'd love a group they just seem so finicky. So cute though <3

OMG... OTOS! *SWOONS*

I'm determined to keep them one day, but you're right. They seem really sensitive. . . makes me nervous!

I kind of am equating them to microfish in my head...I would really like to have a stock of algae for them to eat before I purchase them, and I'd like a group of 6 or so...that's a lot of algae.

One oto survived the office tank. It is the one fish that wasn't too large, too aggressive or out of its water range so I am planning on keeping him and adding some more after the tank gets setup and running.

What are you going to feed him? I've heard of some being successfully kept on algae wafers and veggies, but I'm afraid of having one starve to death :(

With the plants currently he just grazes. but he is only one. There was a ton of algae growth in that tank over the years. After there is a herd of the buggers I'll either induce algae or just feed wafers... chances are some broken wafers once the newbies show up as they will know what they are and he won't so they'll show him the way to the food. Intentional algae could probably get out of hand quickly.

If you remember that huge pleco and there was no other food than just the flake stuff.
