or should i get like 2.

I think you should start with 2. In a 10g there may not be enough food for Ottos to survive if you get more.

yeah thats what i figured........ok would this work....if i took something with algae on it and then put it into the tank.....would that help spread the algae in the tank for the otos to eat???

cause i took a 2 rocks from my 33g (small rocks) and just stuck them in the tank. They had some algae on it and within a week the 2 rocks had ALOT more algae on it. SO would that help spread the algae in and about the tank.

How long would it take to get my tank to be really mature????
it has been going for about a month and is half planted with live plants.
