Hi some q's about otocincluses (otocinclusi?)
1) I caught one of my oto's on its back 'sucking' on the surface of the water. Is this normal or is my fish insane?

2) I saw some eggs the other day on some plants. They were white with a black spot...sorta like little rice. Now I know they didn't belong to the betta. Could they be the ghost shrimps, snails or the oto's? I hope it's the oto's but I'm not holding my breath. Anyone have any pics of oto eggs?

Thanks and have a great day.

Probably isn't getting enough oxygen. I know otos like lots of current. Or is he just going up to the top occasionally to get a mouthful of air? Mine does this and I don't worry about it since it's not all the time.

I dunno about the eggs, could most likely be snails if you have them. But then again you never know. Rolling Eyes Are they on the underside of the leaves or on top?
