Isn't amazing that they can stay well fed but remain out of sight. 
Last year I replaced the substrate and removed a UGF from a 30 gal.  In
that tank I could never see more than the same three otos.  But when I
tore it down, I found twelve, all fat and happy.  But nobody bothers
the otos -- these renegades must have adopted a crepuscular lifestyle.
