Re: SAE behavior question
I have 5 SAE's and 8 Oto's. They tend to hang out in two groups of 3 SAE
and 5 Oto's, and the other group is 2 SAE and 3 Oto's. It's a fact that in
my tank, if you see a SAE then an Oto is very close by as well. I dunno.

* Subject: SAE behavior question
* Today I finally spot a small SAE in a tank containing at least one
* false siamesis and the LSF guy was kind enough to hunt it for ten
* - - the tank with regular SAE contain only submarine size ones, at
* my small 5 gall. After careful aclimatization is looking well, the
* weird thing being that is seem to be very found of the only other
* the tank, a similar size otto.
* Him, the otto seem to want to take care of his plant scrubbing
* alone, but the new guy is looking lost after a few minutes and goes
* hunting for the otto.
* I don't know what to think, I'm kind of found of the little otto who
* with me for half of year now, and survivor of my continuing learning
* period including even a experimental DIY co2 phase when the pH
* the point where he was turning belly up on the bottom of the tank.
* The only other companions in the tank are five
* Amano-type-but-smaller-species-shrimp whom I don't even see during
* Anybody experienced this kind of behavior from SAE ?
