I like Otis too. They get 2 inch Max and do a good job. Mine school sometimes too. If u do get a pleco make sure u stick with smaller ones like the bristlenose but even then they will get 8 to 10 inches mature.

I have a pair of Bolivian rams and they are very peaceful. Have never seen em nip fins or show aggression. But being cichlids if they spawn they will show aggression to protect their eggs

Those plectos shown will get big. The otos always do better wrk and are more interesting in their highly active behavior. Imo.

I thought so. Always like to check b4 I say I prefer a different fish that the guy I am talkin to doesn't already own/ love that fish... I only say that about plectos bc my oldest and most dear fish is the laziest, most useless plecto ever!! Lol

Awesome... I would wry about comparability w tropical fish. Especially dietary needs. And I always wry about chlids w non chlids. But I have no experience w that particular fish.
