    Look it his/her belly... Is he/she getting fat cause of the algae in my tank? Didn't think there was that much....

    Woah, she's pudgy! Do you have any others? Is it possible she's pregnant?

      It could be 3 things... 1 she is a pig, lol, 2 congrats you lay get babies, 3 there is a chance she has worms... A few times I've seen threads of people thinking their.otos were gravid then a few days later they died... These guys are all wild caught so a bunch of them normally have worms or parasites

        I have 2 Otos... I can usually find one... rarely do I see both at once but when I do I am always relieved. I got them what... a month ago? I originally bought 5 but three died almost right away (I know they are fragile but still was disappointed). I doubt she's pregnant because they are caught in the wild and I was under the impression they don't breed in captivity. I hope she's just a pig.

        Any way I can tell if she has worms or not? This is of course assuming I can find this one when I get home from work :P

        Also I was planning to get more if my LFS ever gets them in... as they are community fish and oh so cute.

          I'm not sure how to be sure of they are worms or not... And its rare.but very possible to get babies in captivity... A few people on the other forum have had luck getting babies from otos

                        I've once dissected a pudgy Oto once after she died. I wanted to know if she was fat or gravid and I found eggs.
