What's your track-record on Oto's?

I've actually been referred by a few people along the time (wish i remembered who!) but anyways, whats your survivability rate on your Zebra Oto's? Also do they get along with the generic Oto's? I guess you can understand when LPS are 50/50, I would love to know your track-record on them and even give them a shot.

I've got 3 otos in a planted 120 gallon. All survived. One has an absolutely enourmous belly; I think she's full of eggs. They are are super neat little fish.

Never seen a zebra oto. But petco generic otos: 1/2 or 50% survival rate. Don't know why. Buy two. One lives. The other does not. But once they acclimate, no problems or woes. They munch on forever on the algae slime.
