Notes

Otocinclus are very hardy and one of the most peaceful nano catfish you'll ever find.  They're true herbivores and wont eat baby shrimp fry.  They're also a shoaling fish, so when kept in larger groups they'll swim around together from one feeding point to another.

Tank Mates

Dwarf Corydoras are great tank mates with most shrimp species!

They're also great with Tetras, Rasboras, Danios, Hatchetfish, Mollies, Dwarf Gourami, Angelfish, Guppies, Loaches and Otocinclus

Notes

Smooth sand or gravel substrate preferred.  They're not solely algae eaters, so provide wafers and other foods as well.  Careful with aggressive fish eaters as they may not get enough nutrition at the bottom of tank.
