I wanted the oto's not really for algae, just because I really love them in my other planted. They're one of my favorite fish to watch. I dont have to have them though.
The profile for the apistos we have listed says that a harem will work in a 24in tank. Will 1 male and 3 females be okay with the tetra in the tank as well? Would I still be able to get another shoal, even with the extra 2 females?
Also, do the majority of the apistos species prefer a harem?
Otos are fine; I thought maybe the algae was the reason, and that is 3 more fish.
Some Apisto species are best in a pair, others in a harem. In a 29g you can still have another group of small peaceful characins whichever, depending upon species of both the characin and the apisto (thinking size and temperament of both). Your live plants help out too.
