I've kept otos in groups on two's for years. It's perfectly fine.

Yes, one of my crs is berries now, infact I have two but she was already prego from the other tank when I moved her. Unfortunately she died about 4 days after I introduced her into the tank. I think it was because of the co2 kit in the tank because the night before she died there seemed to be a few shrimp at the top of the tank which was probably because they needed oxygen. So I took the co2 kit out and within 3 days the shrimp looked happier than ever (brighter colours coming to the front of the tank) and I have seen 2 shrimp molt not sure if that is just neutral or good. Later some real bad algae started to grow so I decided to get some otocinclus from the LFS. Fortunately all are happy and eating well although one of them has a bad tail fin that seems to have been nipped and now has something white growing around it. So I have two questions

1. How should I manage the co2 should I just take it out at night?

2. Will the otos fin grow back?
