if you have a preference which species you like in either Otocinclus or Corydora that'd also be helpful
Why not get both? They are both great fish. To be honest though I would probably say I prefer the ottocinclus. Cories have never been real active for me. I may try again but I have had little luck. Pygmy cories would be the exception. I had a tank with those that was beyond active. I ried again and they were always hiding. They prefer dark substrate.
Ottos look like sharks as they mature. They spend alot of time stuck to decor or glass but when the swim they just have thus really cool shark like appearence. And if money isnt an issue zebra ottocinclus are awesome!
Ottos are not as easy to establish however. IMO
they should not be kept in a tank without live plants and possibly not without driftwood (at least at first).
