They'll enjoy some spinach or slices of zucchini as well. Just blanch the veggies a bit first, to soften them up. Get a veggie clip for affixing it to the inside of the tank.

Yam is another very nutritious veggie.

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.
