otos are my new bestfriend!

so i had a brown algae infestation in my 2 month old aquarium which i had never had before in the past and after reading alot of advices and tips in AA, i decided to take the risk and buy 10 otos to clean the ugly algae in the tank eventhough my tank isnt mature yet.

and it was amazing! after two days my aquarium is 90% cleaned of brown/slime algae!!!!! and the otos lived through! sometimes my angel tried to poke them or going to get a snack out from them but they swim away fast - but i love these tiny little fish (i didnt knew it was THAT tiny lol). they are now my 3rd favorite fish!!!!!

a pic of one of the otos devouring brown algae in a java fern in my tank - they cleaned it all up! THANK YOU AA!

I'm sure they were more than happy to help! He looks like he's gonna chew through the algae and move on to that plant. =)
