Could you share your tank information (temperature, pH, type of plants, etc) to encourage the rest of us?
I have two different species of Oto (not sure which though, I've searched for pictures and can't find any I can say for sure are what I have) in two seperate aquariums. One of mine is gravid and two (I'm assuming males) chase her around a lot, so I'm hopeful. I look at the plant leaves everyday to search for eggs, but nothing yet.
