Is this viable>?

I would like a algae controlling fish and might keep a grp of them for the tank with juvenile angels so they can grow up together

Don't know what the textbook says, but I have otos in my tank with 4 angels and there are no problems whatsoever. Everyone just seems to ignore the otos. In fact, I'll often see an oto on the side of one of my gourami, almost looking like he's eating off of it.

As usual, I'd defer to the experts here....just stating what I've experienced....

I agree. I see not problem with Ottos and Angels. I know and read about many people who have kept them together for many many years with no problem. so go a head.

Just so you know these fish will need a nice size group. IMO I think 5 is a great size group. But mind you they eat algae very well and fast so be prepared to give them food supplements.

I also dont foresee any problems with that combination.
