Feeding Oto cats

I just added a few oto cats to my tank and they seem pretty hungry and I'm worried that there may not be enough algae for them to graze on just yet. I have some HIkari algae wafers but they don't...

What is that? (Nymphaea Lotus)

So here's my lotus plant. It's only been in the tank for about 2 weeks and I've removed the leaves that were not looking too good leaving the plant with only one stalk. It then produced another...

Your battle with BBA may not be solved by a redo either. Isn't it possible you either have too much light? Too much fertz? Too many fish?
