    Can painted decor that was made for fish so it's fish safe be with oto's. I'm afraid they will suck on the decor and suck paint off and ingest it.

    If it's fish safe, it should be fine.

    I wouldn't worry about them sucking the paint off anything made for fish. I have otos and I have to soften all their extra veggies I feed them. Like Dom90 said if its safe for fish they should be fine.

    I would keep a small bit of natural decor in with them as well, though, as in wood. rick

    I've added just about everything to my tank. I just put it in my toilet tank. The constant flushing leeches almost everything bad out.
