I have a 10 gallon fry tank with loads of green and brown algae on one wall and on the heater. I have been researching otos, and I decided to buy 3 at my LFS. There were 25 fry in the tank and I read that otos aren't interested in eating fry. So I put them in. There were plenty of places to hide, but when I woke up this morning I saw only a few fry left in the tank. The otos didn't even touch the algae. I put them into my 20 gallon community tank, and now they are sucking what little algae is on the plants. I see 4 fry currently and I am hoping more are in the gravel. I guess otos aren't all herbivores... but the confusing part is that their mouths are so tiny, I got the smallest ones at the store. GRRRRRRR........
