Orange Zebra Oto (Hypoptopoma sp. ‘Peru Orange’)


A beautifully and distinctively marked dwarf relative of the common Otocinclus, the Orange Zebra Oto inhabits the upper Rio Nanay in Peru, where it spends most of its time grazing on submerged driftwood and vegetation. An ideal algae eater for most community or planted aquariums, they will eat filamented algae and diatoms from most surfaces, including the aquarium glass. Like most of their close relatives, they are best kept in groups.
