I wouldn't agree.

I have bought 14 of them, and 13 of them are still alive (had them for 2
years). The last dies 2 weeks ago, because of a tumor.

In the newsgroups some people say all of they oto's died within 24 hours,
and others have no problems at all.

I think it has maybe something to do, with the quality of them when you buy
Because there is nothing special about my tank.
66 gal heavilly planted, with CO2 and duplarit in gravel. and 60 watt of
light. NO2 and NO3 and PO4 are withon acceptable levels.

With many Thanks
