    Default My first casualty :(

    I just found one of my otos dead. I was moving a couple plants around, and found him under the log thing. I think he may have gotten stuck. I'm pretty sad about this - it's my first death since setting my 20g long up. :-\

    Sorry for your loss Ellen.
    Don't be too hard on yourself. At least you know it wasn't your fault and no illnesses are involved.

    Thanks, ya'll. I've been keeping an extra close eye on everyone - they seem to be fine. Just a sad death, I reckon.

    Ellen, don't get down about the oto. They are frail. You've done such a great job with your tank and stocking.
    When in doubt, do a water change.

    Sorry Ellen...I find Otos die for no apparent reason. Most people find them a little sensitive.

    quite common to lose an Oto or two in the first month, don't let it get you down
    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.
