Yeah, I think that's the right approach. Good luck to you.

|Jason K||Thanks guys. Each tanks started with just a pair of otos. I think the fact there were no other fish, and plenty of algae, led to the breeding. Will do updates on the survival rate, etc. The female is still plenty fat, I think she's gonna keep laying eggs.|

|Allentan97||i wish my otos would breed... then I wouldnt need to buy them, congrats! and the tanks look awesome! how many otos did you buy?|

Two 45Ps build: Now with Oto fry
Looks great! Way to be persistent with the algae. I am in a similar battle, and trying resist the temptation for drastic measures.

Omg I see them!
Keep up the great work.

Week 8 update:
Still battling algae in both tanks, but I can tell it's gotten significantly better over the last few weeks...hopefully the tanks will be algae 'free' in a few more weeks. Both tanks at this point have a few amanos, cherries, otos, and MTS.
Wood tank: Crypt parva has melted away for the most part, hoping they'll come back soon. Only a few stems of rotala arcuata made it through the algae onslaught, so I added some rotala indica as well.
Stone tank: Oto pair had a bunch of babies. I've counted 20-30 of em of various sizes (and ages I presume) remaining, and I know I've lost a bunch more to water changes/filter maintenance. Atleast something good came out of the algae battle!
WEEK 8--after trimming and water change
OTO FRY--5 in this pic

|Soup12||just a few amanos will clean it all up. You will be amazed. Next best is cherry shrimp.|

Maybe a few amanos.
I did add two Otos in each tank the other day...they are not really making much of a difference at this point.
