    Hi all,
    I recently bought a few of those so-called 'zebra otos', now living happily in my shrimp tank. Had expected the body markings to be similar but apparently, it isn't so...



    One question for those who are familiar with Otocinclus... are these really 'zebras'??

    Yes, and they are now called Otocinclus cocama.

    Besides 'zebras', what else did you bring back from your safari?

    Zul, I was also looking for some 'mini plecos'... those that don't grow beyond 5cm. There were some at Eco, cute buggers specked with little white dots, but I hesitated and those were sold out. Still waiting for the next lot to come in.

    I saw that too at Kingfisher (lfs) but didn't ask why the term 'mini'. They look cute.

    What's the max size?
