Not for otos in my experience. The slow starvation that it appears happened to my Petsmart otos took a couple weeks or more. The theory that something in their inner gut gets wiped out from...

I am not going to try and talk you in to either choice. For me the inconvenience of not being able to reach the substrate in the center back is a small price for the larger viewing area. I do not...
