New otocinclus baby in tank I think

Crystalb4

I think we have a oto baby born in our tank we found today. What do you think? We have only 2 oto’s in the tank with tetra fish. Could there be more than 1 baby? If it’s not an oto then what could it be? What do I do now?

It probably hitchhiked on some plants if you have added any recently. Could have also been introduced if you added new fish too.

You can either remove it or keep it - ‘pest’ snails are an effective clean-up crew when their numbers are controlled properly.

Hi welcome to FishLore!!
I'd get rid of it. If you're not careful you can end up with hundreds. I had one at one time as well.

Thank you so much for the information! I appreciate you.

Just to let you know, oto fish are very shy and like to be in groups of minimum 6, you might be able to get away with 4 but it depends on your stocking, bio load and tank size.

how big is your tank ?

What is in the tank ?

Can you post a full tank photo?
