Oto? I'm not quite sure what that is.

I'm pretty sure it's a siamese flying fox, pets smart had it listed as that and I checked online for pictures

I watched the video again and it sure looks like an oto to me. I keep both otos and a flying fox. Otos have an underslung suckermouth while the flying fox doesn't. Pet Smart has been known to be wrong, but so have I!

Ah, damn. I think it IS an oto.

I need to buy him a friend then.

Thank you for the heads up!

Be glad he's an oto! Is this a 9 gl tank? If so, a flying fox gets to be much too large for a tank your size and requires some swimming room. A trio of otos would be perfect!
Pet Smart, strikes again.
