I bought three Ottocinclus cats today. They had just been delived and were still in the bag.
I asked for three, and she gave me three, but the lady at the checkout only counted two in the bag so I only paid for two. Alright!
They have good, well defined color, fat bellies, and are moving around and eating. I know that these have a high mortality rate, but I hope atleast one survives. then I'll buy two more and replace the ones that die untill i've got three healthy ones. since these things die so frequently after you buy them (cyanide?), I bought 100 ml's of Purigen just in case.
I'll post pics later tonight. Anyone have tips? All they are with is breeding Cherry shrimp (all but six of mine died in a power failure, i've got 10 more coming). I bought them algea wafers, but I didn't read the ingredients and they have copper sulfate in them (that would kill the shrimp). What do you guys use?
