Still don't know, what exactly is the temp difference? If the large tank is or will be 25C/77F, the other can't be that far off in a normally heated room.

yea true , ill recheck after the move

thanks for all ya help

I'm assuming you mean the Siamese Algae Eater which is probably Crossocheilus langei, the confusion over the names is explained in our profile. Should be OK together, just remember the SAE gets 6 inches.

Otos are best in a small group, minimum 3 will work.

Different otos should be fine together. And I have never noticed any territoriality, but they do like to be together from time to time.

SAE is quite another matter; most aquarists have only one, though this is a shoaling fish and likes to be in a group wherein there will be an hierarchy formed. But singly it should manage.
