Giant Ottos

Postby sredgrave » Thu Sep 28, 2017 11:16 pm


I have had a group of 'giant ottos' for around 2 months now. They are doing fine, however not long after I got them I started to notice small holes in my plants, mainly my amazon swords. I thought this was due to a lack of nutrients etc. so changed my plant fertilizer for a more complete one, but kept seeing new holes appear. However, after reading everything I can find on all different types of Otto's, I was confident enough they were not to blame as I can find no reports at all of Otto's eating plants.

However, I have tonight witnessed before my own eyes one of my Giant Otto's eating a plant leaf and leaving behind some nice holes!!

Has anyone else ever seen or heard of this? Is there anything I can do to prevent this as the tank is heavily planted and taken a good bit of work to reach this stage.

Thanks in advance!
