its been 7 days since I have seen baby otto's. as of today they are still tiny but the tails are starting to color up a little. I cant take a picture because they are so small. they are in my shrimp tank so they wont get eaten. I heard they are hard to raise when they are this young...

How is the decor like in the tank? Any plants?

Here's what I use. Take some Ken's Veggie Flake and Sticks and grind them up into a very fine powder. You can also add a bit of seaweed too.

Once in powder form, mix a small amount with tank water. Shake very well. Then pour out mix over plants and decor where you see the fry.

Here's a link to my journal. Might have some good info in there to help you out.

Thanks james. they are mostly on the glass. the eggs were in a different tank. I moved some mopano drift wood into my shrimp tank and the eggs were on it. im glad because they would have been food for my rams. i will post a pic of the tank they are in in a minute
