Hi everybody!
I have heard all sorts of information regarding the diest of an otocinclus catfish.
I have read books where they say Otocinclus ONLY eat green algae.
Some websites say they eat brown, green, and hair algae.
Other people say they eat all kinds of algae!
So, once and for all, which types of algae do otocinclus consume?
Thanks

Hi aquariumrookie,

My Otocinclus eat diatoms (brown algae) and soft green flat type algae. They do not eat green spot algae, green dust algae (both are 'hard') nor any of the hair algae types.
