Otto Catfish Issue

TheSpasticCorydora

Does anyone have an otto cat that is sort of a butt to other fish? At times mine will chase the corydora or my loaches. It gets fed a variety of food from brine shrimp, blood worms, sinking wafers, algae on a fake plant, and sometimes I put a piece of zucchinI in the tank. He doesn't really bother my angels, just some of the other fish on the bottom. The tank is 55gal. (Ive posted a pic of it before) has lots of places to hide and explore. Not sure what my ottos issue is.

Do you just have one? I have never heard of them being anything but peaceful however they should be kept in groups so if you just have one that could be the problem.

Hi, is he the only Oto you have? Oto’s are social fish best kept in groups, his behaviour could be that he’s stressed as he’s alone & has no others of his own kind to socialise with.

I see. He is currently alone as the others passed. They were old. I guess I'll buy more ottos again. I didn't realize they were very social.
