They can be hard to tell apart.

The SAE has a solid line down it's body that goes all the way to the tail. The Otto has a black line too, but ends with a black dot. Hard to tell from the pic since you cannot really see the tail hehe. The black line on the SAE looks like it was painted with a perfect brush, whereas the black line on the Otto looks like it was painted with a tatty old brush. Did that make any sense at all? LOL

does anyone know what this Algea eater is when I bought them the guy explained they were SAE and it was written on the store tank Aswell but with a bit of research I done they don't have the black strip through the body but only a black dot at the rear. I believe there or of the same family as the siamese Algea eater and do a really good job LOVE THEM
