.... I didn't even know zebra oto's existed.
I gotta have some.
Are they a unique species or just a special patterning?

Hi Rachel, hope you get catch up on your sleep from yesterday soon. Just wanted to say everything is settling in nicely and looking really good. Thank you again, you exceed expectations. Hope you got alot of those zebra otos looks like there will be a bidding war. lol Already working up my next list, Had them on my list also along with the CPD's, chili rasboras and damn those PFR's look really good too. Ugh what to do? lol One question though on the microcrabs, is there a good profile on them WRT care and parameters any where? Everything I seem to find is old and only gives guesses on what they need. Thanks. Paul

There is a european anecdotal type profile. Nothing particulary great. I have been keeping them about 3 years now. Their care is mainly guesswork still, at this point

As for otos, I will NOTgive prices until they are at least half way through qt! Its not like these fish were easy to get A gal cannot be reckless!

I've been looking to get another couple Otos, is there any reason I can't keep those Zebras with the regular Otos I got from you last time?
