How often do they need to eat something other than algae?
Amanos are exceptionally easy to supplement. I would not start feeding them other things until they have eaten a lot of your algae, as they will eat what is easiest to get.

I love watching them surf by grabbing a piece of duckweed just before it gets into the filter current. I can almost hear them going "wheeeeeeee"

What is the difference between otocinclus affinis and otocinclus vittata? I have some o. affinis from my lfs but you have o. vittat and they look practically the same.
