    Hi All,
    Spotted a batch of zebra otos over at Eco culture, adult size about 3-4cm. Head on down and have a look.
    Something about the water & the fishes that calms me down.

    No problem, Evo. I am also a long time admirer of this little beauty.

    Yup, I am keeping 6 of them for quite sometime now. My zebra otos are doing well, despite having to relocate from one tank to another thrice within the last few weeks. In fact, some have growth quite plump, perhaps filled with eggs?

    That would be great, Kray. Do keep us posted, I have not heard of them spawning yet. If it does, what a way to usher in the new year. I'll keep my fingers cross for you ...anyway Happy Chinese New Year.

    If that's the case, it would be exciting! Not may successful otocinclus spawnings around. Mostly accidental spawns except Ronwill's.

    I'm surprised that yours are doing well even with your current setup. They are suppose to be fragile creatures.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    Of all the otos I think the Zebra is the MOST fragile. I've not had luck with them for the past few times I've owned them, even though my tank has a fairly good growth of green algae for them to chow on. Oddly enough, my 2 Parotocinclus spilosoma are doing excellent in the same tank where I never expected them to survive for a long time.

    So maybe.. just maybe I might be enticed to drop by at Eco, take a look and perhaps get some for myself.

    Hi People,
    Went shopping with my kakis today, spotted these beauties again at Eco Culture and 'Colourful' over at Thomson. Mature specimens and seem quite healthy. Really damn hard to resist... 'Chiong ah'......

    Not going to be as nice as Benny's... but here's one that I have in my tank now...

    Pardon the "accessories"... i.e. snails and the algae...

    Cheers,
    Joe
