Yes the rubber noses and ottos will eat all the following, my rubber noses will also eat blood worms when I feed them to the other fish, shirmp pellets, and also any flake food that makes it down to them that the others don't eat first or the corys. For the rubber-nose plecos you also need to make sure that you have driftwood in the tank because they will rasp (I believe that is the term) off of the driftwood.
