For Drew et al -- Dumb Otos et al

Well, here's two points for you, Drew...

When I feed my fish they all get really excited and hyper-active including the Otos as they feed on their brown algae. No logic there. I mean it's not like I'm dumping brown algae into the tank!

On the other hand, the other fish don't always act so smart either.

When I drop in a sinking wafer the SAEs get to it first, but then spend most of their time chasing each other around the tank. At this point the angel fish comes down and starts working on the wafer.

The clown loaches don't win any prizes for smarts either.

During most of the day the big one stays in the cave and won't let the little one in. B
