Whenever I look into my 10 gallon that has my otos, they always try and bury themselves in the gravel like my coolie loach. I don't think is normal, is it? If not, how would I be able to prevent them from hurting themselves?
They seem fine, it's just that I'm worried about them.Mmmmh. 2 theories remain, then: 1/ they think they're loaches; 2/ they'd like more otos in there with them? Interesting, interesting. Do they seem OK though, like, not really scared or anything?
Thanks, the other one seems very calm and cool. I think I might pick up some more befroe I put in Big Blue(a male betta). I might also pick up some more coolie loaches too.I have 4 otos with my betta and one or two of them tend to be on the sensitive side and try to nose-dive into the large-pebble substrate I use whenever I turn on the light, or startle them. The other two are calm, cool & collected...but Zippy is a little spaz and he always has been! ;D I don't think you have anything to worry about, it could be just their personalities.
