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 :shock: ...

...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 :wink: ...

well good luck, my lone oto (after two of his friends died :() wont eat any thing i feed him, he will only eat the algae growing in my tank.

Thanks :D ...

...maybe you need to get yours a buddy!

musho3210 02-22-2007 08:01 PM

yeah but i cant find any in stock, he's always been like this, even with his buddies, he was the only survivor of the break-in period

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

they all think chinese algae eaters are the best ones, darn petsmart telling us lies!

Rue 02-22-2007 08:28 PM

...shhhh...don't tell anyone...I got these guys at Petsmart... :lol:

But yes...Chinese Algae Eaters were the only ones I was aware of too...wonder why?

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