Otocinclus Catfish - Otocinclus sp. (Macrotocinclus affinis / Otocinclus affinis)

The Otocinclus Catfish, commonly known as Otos or Oto Cat.  These little Loricariidae cats are one of the smallest you can find in the hobby and does a fantastic job cleaning algae in an aquarium.  Even aquascaping experts love the cleaning ability of the Oto as they are safe for planted aquariums.

Size is about 3/4" to 1".

    After acclimating they settled right in. All healthy, and doing a great job in the tank!

    Excellent experience this time around in regards to protocols which is important to us as we are high risk and been staying out of public. I am glad I gave them a 3rd chance as the first two were not so good (didn't feel safe). This time the young man was courteous, professional, respected us by keeping him and us safe the entire time. Friendly from first phone call to last phone call to picking them up in person. Rare at this store so it was just really nice to have a good comfortable experience. Thank you... One fish passed away within hours after getting it :( , but the other two are thriving and seem to be content in their new home. :)

    1 of the 6 fish was dead and partially eaten by the time they arrived. Otherwise, quick shipping and delivery. The other 5 are healthy and active.

    So far, so good! Arriving in a warm box and looking very healthy, our three little algal eaters are thriving and eating up the overabundance of algae accumulated in our tank. They only arrived two days ago, so hopefully this positive trend will continue!

    Otocinclus Catfish

    Posted by Amy on 2nd Dec 2020

    A notoriously difficult fish to ship and care for. All 9 of my fish arrived fat and healthy! All have survived. I am very impressed with the care they were given before they were sold and shipped to me. I believe that made all the difference. WELL DONE!
