    Do otos eat thread/hair algae? I know they are great on diatoms but does anyone have any personal experience with them?

    I had green fine threaded algae on my anubias leaves and the ottos took care of that within 2 days. I just fell in love with these little creatures....

    ditto. It`s the only algae I have right now and the ottos always look so full they could burst. Great little workers.

    While I love my Ottos, I have a batch of Neocardina denticulata about to be released into the aquarium.

    Are Otto's likely to eat the shrimp fry?

    Most likely not. They are not predatory in nature.
