1 otocinclus is not enough! TRUST ME, lol. I posted something like this a while ago and other members were battering me about it >:O Apparently Otos must live in a 30 gallon minimum tank. They love lots of room to roam, and cannot be kept singly or in numbers lower than 6.
Nerite snails are fantastic cleaners though. I had one for several weeks ("Borrowed" from my cousin's tank hehe) when I had a big algae bloom in the goldie tank. Well, the little guy zipped around and in 2 weeks there wasn't half as much algae on the tank walls....and this was a 40 gallon. If you want a good clean-up crew, get a couple more nerites :3
7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats
Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail
