i had the same problem too. they wouldnt eat the wafers and veggies. i seen them find it, hover over it, nipple for a second and then swim away. i ended up refunding the wafers and let the otos just eat the algae in the tank and that was about a month ago and theyre doing fine. algae will naturally occur in the tank and they will find it and eat it and keep doing it. if u have fake plants dont clean them or dont clean them as good or as often so they have something to eat and dont wipe down the insides of the tank walls, they will get to it.
but for those wafer leftovers, once they break up and start falling apart fish it out your tank but honestly just refund it and say your otos wont eat it.
otos i think are more low maintainance then bettas that or maybe its the fact i dont pay attention to them. i barely checked their belly size maybe a week ago, and they got full round bellies so without me really doing anything and theyre doing fine. plus i consider my betta my pet, the otos are my betta's pets.
