More oto death, but strange.
I bought two otos about a week ago and slowly acclimated them so they would not stop eating and lose the bacteria. Went well, they were sucking all day long and got a heavy black streak with dark brown coloring until today. I walk in and one oto is swimming on it's side when it was attempting to and had turned stark white, I mean no color except the eyes. Yet my other oto was munching away just fine and actually a tad bit more active than usual for the daytime. I am testing my water tomorrow but has this happened to anyone else or is it just a freak oto?
