There is no difference. They are also exteremely active and thus are not suitable for a 10 gallon tank.

You need at least 3 otos for a group. Otos also need a bigger tank, they can get quite large.

I see.

Why did I become a fishkeeper in the first place...? Because someone has to look out for the fish who have no one on their side.

I'd say about 3 Otos to a group. And they only get to be 2 inches max, they don't get big at all. Perfect little algae eaters for a 10g!

They are lively and need lots of space.

Also, how aggressive is your Betta? I had mine with 5 glo-light tetras and he killed and ate them all... I've heard some Neon horror stories too.

A tank with those size fish you have now is at its max, you need to get a 20g to add more fish

I'm not adding anymore fish, this is my max and I'm fine with it as is. I'm just saying that you can comfortably house the 3 Otos in a 10g- mine are just fine.
