Hello,

I was sold this fish under the assumption that it was an otocinclus catfish. I bought 6 in total the other 5 looked like normal oto cats this one looks different. Is this and Oto cat? If not what is it?

Not an oto. Otos have a black stripe with a tan/brown top and a white bottom that contrasts. That appears to be a Chinese algae eater. If it is it will get big and mean, eats other fish and gets to about a foot.
Great now I have to find a place that will take this thing off my hands. Thanks for the reply

I would take it back to where you got it. They should have to take it back because its not a otto cat.

Unfortunately I don't think they will since I didn't notice it till after the others died and it has been over a month now.

wrong thread
Actually no I didn't know if it was an Oto cat or not since it was sold to me with a bunch of Otos. Before you go trying to be Mr. Know it all check the entire post.

He said it was a mistake. He meant to post it in another thread. Happens all the time :).

Yeah...he told you the wrong info, then posted "wrong thread" because he meant to post the info he gave you somewhere else.

You can't delete a post once its made. He wrote something for another post accidentally in this one. Thats why he said wrong post. We were answering several at the same time. Got confused.

I had a quote in queue for quoting and I was deleting some tabs and I accidentally posted onto this thread, I didn't realize it until a minute later so I edited it out and posted 'wrong thread', to not confuse anybody. Simple misunderstaning.
