    This is an interesting video. Otto's don't breed in captivity, so all the fish sold are wild caught. This video easily explains without words why Otto's almost always die in home aquariums. Look at the water they live in, its so thick with algae the visibility is lest than a couple inches, how stressful bust out clear water with shocking overhead lights be? And the size of the schools these live in must be astronomical, there must be over a thousand fish in that one net scoop. Our little "schools" of 8 Otto's suddenly seem a little pathetic lol.

    I saw that video a couple years ago. Pretty cool when you think about $3 each huh? I have one otto that is over 3 years old and 12 more than will be one year pretty soon. Guess I should feel lucky.

    Wow this is seriously making me rethink getting otos again. Maybe if I have a heavy algae tank but otherwise maybe I'll just stick with snails. Poor little fishies!
