kristina_klee Posted March 7 Share Posted March 7 (edited) Hi All! First-time poster to the forum. I just obtained a small group (5) otocinclus. I started them in a quarantine tank that have been running at 24 hours lighting for a couple of weeks (per Cory's article). We are just starting Week #3 in quarantine. I have been feeding them Soilent Green and blanched zucchini. They are eating both, but they really seem to LOVE the zucchini. When I first gave them a half moon slice of zucchini, they took about 2 days to eat it all. Then they were only taking 1-1/2 days. Now they are consuming the zucchini in about 24 hours. I am sure small snails in the tank are helping them with the task, but I do observe the otos eating on the slice. My question for the forum is should I replenish the zucchini as soon as they finish off the last piece or is there any reason to fast them for a a day (or more) in between? I do feed with Soilent Green after every few zucchini slices. Thanks for any insight you might be able to provide! Kristina Edited March 8 by kristina_klee misspelled 'otocinclus'!
