    yes you did not have oto cats. Mine did not mess with any other fish in the tank, they just ate algae. A must have in planted tanks, especially in the beginning to help control algae. They are sensitive fish, so make sure you water has been cycled before adding. Best time to put in tank is when lights are off and co2 has been off for several hours.

    I just read your comment on the Oto Catfish in the fish profiles section of the forums. I don't think the 5 fish you purchased were in fact otos. I believe you were given Chinese Algae Eaters. CAE look nearly identical (similar coloration but slightly different pattern) to an oto but are increasingly aggressive as they get older. CAEs also usually stop eating algae.

    I had a CAE in with my danios. only 3 survived and two of the survivors are severely handicapped (one is missing an eye the other has a damaged gill).

    I thought you should be aware of your potential misguidance.
