Yes, it is recommended that otos be in a minimum group of 3, however, in my experience I have had them in solos and in groups, with no difference in their behavior. I currently have 2 in each tank, and all is well. Prior to this I had 3 in the larger tank, and one in the small tank...the 3 were never together. When the algae became too much for the solo oto to handle in the small tank I added one of the 3 from the larger tank...its still too much algae for the two of them, but again I havent had any issues with a smaller number of otos together. The two have only crossed paths once and quickly seperated.

The only reason I personally keep multiple otos in one tank is for the use of their algae eating, the more otos the less algae.
