  1. Default Growing Algae for Otocinclus


    0 Not allowed!
    I'm starting to farm aquarium algae. I've started out with tank water, a little bit of grazing block enriched with algae, all submerging a rock inside a bowl, which is inside a bag. Is this algae I'm growing safe for the Otos? I was going to get some small algae covered rocks from the creek that's like 50 feet away from my house, but I don't think that's the algae I want. The rock I'm growing algae on is a smooth, fake plastic rock. The Otos have sucked on it before, and I want them to feed on some algae to make them seem more secure. Is this the right method of growing Otocinclus algae?

    Stick some low light plants in the tank and they will feed off that.
    I also offer up a slice of cucumber now and then.
