I have 3 oto's in my 6g edge.

AqAdvisor warns that these may eventually grow too large at 2" - but I would say these are the only real option in a small tank.

Cheers.

I must say I didn't notice much red on their throats, that would explain why.

It is unfortunate, but I have taken the decision not to purchase any of these as I only have the 6 gal edge...

I don't doubt that at all. i just stumbled across my original info, so thought I would share it.

As alluded to earlier, I would guess that the feeding regimen wasn't up to scratch.

As I said, YMMV - it all depends on how intelligent your fish are in finding the smaller opening.

Fish information required - A. porsiger (mouthbrooder)

Saw these in my local Maidenhead Aquatics (Bournemouth). The guys in there couldn't tell me too much about these as they are apparently new to the trade. Couldn't even tell me what the "A." in the...

Question Baby Shrimp? Or a parasite?

Just noticed 3 little buggers in the front of my tank - they will have come in on the plants I brought in (like the snails and worms did).

Pull the plug out the socket and look underneath, all my specs are printed between the prongs.

Re the hood, maybe coating the inside in a reflective material would help?

Well based on a previous comment, I think pH has more to do with my NH4 than anything else.

After the W/C, my NH3 dipped from 0.108 to 0.083, and has slowly risen back up to 0.107.
My NH4+...
