for those of you with otos, have you noticed if they will eat plants? I don't mean like the whole thing, but when they rasp (like they are eating algae), has it caused damage to your live plants?
hmm, i'm wondering if it takes a few times for anything to actually show up. I noticed that the areas where the otos like to stay have leaves that are more likely to get holes in them.
I thought it was a nutrient deficiency, but there doesn't seem to be one. maybe the combo of otos rasping and slight nutrient deficiency?
Is the one that shuns the other 2 bigger or smaller than them? thinner or fatter?
I pulled this description of Flourish:
Flourish™ is a comprehensive plant supplement for the natural freshwater aquarium. It contains a rich assortment of important micro elements, trace elements and other nutrients. These include calcium, magnesium, iron and other important elements that have been shown to be beneficial to aquatic plants. For macro element (NPK) fertilization, use Flourish Nitrogen™, Flourish Phosphorus™ or Flourish Potassium™ as needed.
you're welcome and if you happen to see some little eggs in the future, let us know.. it's not real common for otos to breed in home tanks I believe.
