so... my planted tank somehow has no algae (not yet anyways) and i was wondering if ottos would be okay? i mean, i'll feed them veggie wafers since thats what i have for my snails, but i know they like sucking stuff off the glass and everything. i was also going to get amano shrimp so even if i start getting algae, there won't be very much for the ottos!

Feed them fresh veggies several times per week, they wont touch algae/veggie wafers, at least the ones I have dont. You could also consider upgrading your light system or longer photo periods. Both will have potential to increase algae growth to feed the Otos.

I will be upgrading my lighting in just a few days. And I'm already feeding zucchini to my snails so it sounds like ottos will be a great addition!
