Otocinclus Catfish

For those of you who have oto cats, do you know how to tell the genders apart?

It's practically impossible. Females are broader though when looking from above but it's pretty difficult to tell otherwise. Breeding them is very difficult as well, is that what you are interested in or just wanted to know their sexes?

Gotcha, yeah, mostly just like cories; females will be larger and more plump from the top is all.
