I figured that would be the answer, but didn't think about an Oto. I have algae all over the "glass" but I'm afraid to scrap it, because there are always tiny, tiny babies on the glass, and I'm afraid I'll kill them.
Do you think 5 gallons is too small for 3 otos? I do have many plants in the tank, and they would be great at keeping it clean.
Thanks for the input!
