I always though that ottos got even bigger than rubber nosed plecos. And everything I've read says to keep them in 20+ gallons, I don't have room for a tank that large. I live in a very small apartment. I've thought about snails and ADFs before, but they tend to be escape artists from what I've heard. Also, I was reading that ottos need lots of surface agitation to increase oxygen exchange, my betta really hates bubblers.
Also I do not have a planted tank, I've considered it, but catching Beau when it's time for water changes or severe weather is hard enough as is. (He's neurotic and panics at the sight of the net, I'm attempting to train him for hand catching)
They who say that sunshine is happiness have never danced in the rain!
