Otocinclus and Keyhole Cichlids

Fri Sep 05, 2014 10:54 pm

So, in my 20 gallon heavily planted tank, I have a keyhole cichlid, a clown pleco, and 8 black phantom tetras. I'm contemplating adding 3-5 otocinclus to the tank.

Dinner for the keyhole or good combination?

I've never tried it, but my keyholes are pretty peaceful. I've got two in a tank with some green neon tetras without problem.

I think I'll give it a try later this week. My keyhole is unbelievably peaceful, too.

I had 2 keyholes together with Otos without issue.

That being said, you never really know until you try.

So how did it work out? Did the keyhole eat the otto?
