Otos actually stay very small. Under two inches generally. They tend to be great fish but they are very very sensitive to water quality. IMO Two or three otos would be fine in a 10g divided. I wouldn't put them in both sections though because they have a high bio load and poop a lot. :P That way if one of your fish doesn't get along with them you can just move them to the other section. :)

If your tank is divided, they're sharing the same water on both sides so what you put in one side will affect the other as well. That is why it is best to quarantine fish when you buy them before putting them in their permanent home. So putting otos on one side and moving to the other doesn't matter that much.

I was talking about the snail not contacting each other so they might not reproduce... Right??? Or will they.... If I buy two types like a mystery and a nerite they won't reproduce either right???

Most snails can reproduce without a partner. I don't think mystery snails can reproduce without a partner though, and nerites reproduce only in brackish water and they won't reproduce with each other. So you're safe.

Apple snails and nerites both rarely breed. I've never met someone who was over-run by either :p For ones like ramshorn, I had that problem. They made more poop than anything, they were an eye sore... so stick to the nerites, trumpets, apples... apple snails grow slowly. YES they can get big, fightergirl :p not denying that lol!! but that takes quite a while. Usually you can come across baby ones, who are just little fellas. If you don't want ones breeding, usually avoid pond or ramshorn :)

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Actually Sena, they get pretty big, fast. They can to 2 times their size in a matter of months. :/
