Very nice! Yu should be very happy. It's cool to see the parental behavior of cichlids.

I would remove the otos instead of the eggs. hatching eggs is bit more complex.

but i need my otos to eat the algae. oh well if the rams can hatch the egg so be it anyway i don't have the intention of breeding a fish, i just wanted to see and experience having a success in hatching the eggs.

thank you!

Well otos aren't very big. i would let them try a few more times with the otos and if the otos continue to eat the eggs I would remove them at least until the fry hatch. I have seen rams fend off plecos and discus so they SHOULD be able to fend off otos.
