Dear baby Otocinclus

Dear baby Oto,

I saw you today. You were very small and you did not stay on that Hygrophila leaf very long, but I did see you and I know who you are! The only other residents in that tank are cory cats, and you my little friend were no baby cory. I wish I had a decent camera so I could share your arrival with my friends... I suppose your tank is too big and too densely planted for me to ever find any eggs or even see fry predictably. But that's OK; I do look forward to seeing you again as you grow!

Love,
Dad

Dear baby Otocinclus

Same here, saw one in my tank and took a few shots of it with my DSLR, but wished I had a macro lens! Never saw it again after that. :T
