    It's sooo tiny I can't figure out if it's a peppered cory fry or maybe just maybe an oto fry? Either way, ::happy dance:: and luckily my parameters are good so no pwc for today!!



    Any one know for sure? I'm scouring the tank for more...this one has a good spot, on top of my thermometer at the top of the tank :)

    It is virtually unheard of for otos to breed in aquaria.
    If that is indeed an oto fry(and it sure looks like it), then a massive congratulations!

    I'll try to get some more pictures but it seriously does look like an oto. I did have one (female I guess) that was looking quite plump but I never looked into the their breeding information.

    Here's a question though...I've been treating daily with Pimafix & Melafix (three days now) for a tetra with a couple tiny white tufts (see my post in the fish disease section), can I continue to treat?

    Thanks steeler1, I don't want to do any harm to the Oto but I'm also just starting to see some positive results with the tetras. Ugh :(

    Just thought I'd give an update, Oto fry is growing and I've found several more really tiny ones hiding in my substrate (making gravel cleaning difficult). Is there something I could do like put a clean nylon stocking over the python tube so I don't suck any up by accident? Here's a current pic of the first little guy I found:

    Must be something about your water the Oto's like . Like Madagascar said, you don't hear of them spawning in home aquariums very often.
