Otos arenÂ´t that difficult to keep if you follow a few rules. Most tank keepers keep their tank pretty clean which means there is lack of nutrition for the otos. You can cover this by feeding them with vegetables. They will love it even if it first seems they donÂ´t like it. Try it a few times and you will see they like a peeled piece of cucumber, salad, fennel, broccoli, etc. .
Keeping them with the puffer fish, well, uhm, puffer fish arenÂ´t a good species to get along with other fish but if it is fed good, there might not be any problems at all. I guess that depends on the puffer itself.
Anyway, itÂ´s possible, that the otos will live much longer than the puffer if the pufferÂ´s fed the wrong way. Those guys usually need snails for their teeth or something else to chew on otherwise their teeth willl grow until itÂ´s not possibel to eat anything.
