This is a discussion on oto feeding within the Catfish forums, part of the Freshwater and Tropical Fish category; -->
I have 2 oto's and they eat any algae in the tank, however I want to supplement with some veggies, what do you guys ...
And it is also good to get them eating prepared sinking foods. Any that suit bottom feeders, like shrimp pellets, algae/kelp/spirulina disk, etc.
Otos may not eat any of these foods until they get hungry, so be careful not to overfeed the tank. If the otos are finding sufficient algae, they will stay with it. Once they can't, they begin to look around and will then find sinking foods. If you have other catfish this is better, as the otos will naturally find the sinking foods put in for the other bottom fish.
