    Hey guys. So sorry for not updating. I actually forgot I started this thread lol my bad.

    Ottos are doing well. I never see them all together but I know that something went wrong with my water quality in my planted tank and lost a few fish. But non the less I do see some of the ottos now and then chilling on my Amazon swords.

    Although this is what I've noticed since I put them in my tank. My Amazon swords are getting circular holes in them. Is it possible the cause of this are the Ottos ?

    Ottos will not damage any plants. if you have ancistrus they are most likely the cause.
