It can be common
They are often smaller than the grey babies and grow a little slower but albino babies are even smaller - in my experience- and grow even slower than blondes.

I use java fern tied on to driftwood to create height. Anubias works too.
They do grow fairly slow but given good conditions grow really well once established. Crypts also do well for me.

My very favorite is ember tetras but I can never find them in my area.
In a bigger tank I like pristellas. They are very hardy and don't mind my harder water.

Terrestrial plant question

Would a finnex stingray help to grow plants if it was mounted under a cabinet over the top of plants on the counter top?
Mostly succulents at this time. No aquatic plants. Maybe a vase later.

Usually they appear from over feeding. And usually otos don't survive in a new tank.
I think once you add fish you will be fine.
My guppies eat them when I stir up the substrate.
