Hi fishkeeper01,

+1 for Razorworm's comment. Otos are sensitive to water quality,if a tank is not fully cycled the ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates spikes could easily cause death. I don't add Otos to my tanks until I see diatoms or soft green flat algae types. If you are running out of food in you 10 gallon try Hikari Algae Wafers or blanched zuchini or cucumber.
