Those otocinculus or however you spell them are great fish... I decided to buy 2 of them since my like... 9 nerite snails in my 27G hexagon constantly ignored cleaning the brown algae (diatoms) off my plants.. (They did scrub the walls really good though) and tose oto's really do a good job cleaning my live plants.. even the ones with tiny thin leaves.. I might 1-2 more.. but no more then that... I read Oto's can be picky to take care of.. If there is no more algae to eat the die.. and in my experience snails and other fish never eat algae wafers... They just sit on my tank floor and rot...
