Garlic works on lots of fish, my ottos only ever lasted a couple of months. I no longer attempt to keep them
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

Ottos are often purchased with IPs. Always make sure they have rounded bellies, not concave, when purchased.

I was looking at her (actually think its a him now) and I know it has parasites. I dosed the tank with PraziPro and have been soaking her bloodworms in metro+. Anything else I should do?
