Two of my Otos were stuck to the glass today and one was obviously thinner. When I looked closer, at first I thought I was seeing it's ribs because it was so skinny. Then I realized that didn't make much sense and then... OMG, it's a worm. Please tell me it's not. I don't know what else it could possibly be. Or what to do about it. I got this Oto about two weeks ago. There's a set of 4 in the tank there were all bought together. No other fish - just red cherry shrimp.
I don't see any worms but that's an excellent photo. Nice job.
LOL. Well, thanks. =) I used my Canon P&S (SD1100 IS) because it's got a digital macro mode that lets me get in closer than I can with my dSLR since I don't have a macro lens.
So you guys are all saying I'm nuts and paranoid?
You don't see how thing wrong with that weird ribbed look on his body and the dark red on his throat area? I'm leaving for vacation in four days and I'm a little concerned it will die will I'm gone and then end up rotting in the tank for over a week and killing everything else off.
