Ottos are egg layers, and depending on who else is in the tank with them the eggs will most likely be eaten

I have no idea. Otos are very hard to breed? I think google is your best bet but their spawning habits are supposedly similar to cories

I doubt you'll get any fry in a mixed tank. Otos breed best in groups in species only tanks.

And females are gravid, not pregnant. Mine was full of eggs, but my males turned out to be wrong species. There are many look alike Oto species and you might get 3 different ones mixed in at the store.

Planet Catfish has a ton of info on breeding Otos and most Catfish.
