Lama Posted February 23, 2022 Share Posted February 23, 2022 I don’t have a photo of this, but have had two incidents of our Otocinclus going into the tube for the sponge filter and getting themselves wedged into the cap where the airline attaches. After the second occurrence in two weeks, I decided to remove the green plastic tube from the top and am hoping this doesn’t happen anymore. Might there be some other actions I can take to help prevent this problem? We have a size large Aquarium Coop filter in a 20 gallon planted tank. The Otocinclus seem to be ok so far; immediately after, I observed red scrapes on the fish around their head and gills. But the redness has improved and it seems to be eating (full belly) and flitting around normally. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
