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

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.
