Don't Otos need much warmer water than 68F? I would suggest that you try to clean off some of the water drips from your glass -- using vinegar could help with that. Like the soft feathery hornwort. Makes a nice floating canopy. Fish are colorful. Are those your hands and fingers I see in the background?

the oto's are doing well, they seem to be very adaptable, I have them in most of my tanks. I totally should've cleaned the glass before taking pictures, guess I got a little excited about my newly added guppies! The glass was spotted because I had been messing around in the tank off and on rearranging things. And lastly, yes you see the reflection of my hands and camera. the tank has no background because it is viewable from both sides.
