Otocinclus and Otocinclus Catfish
I just got really confused... are Otocinclus and Otocinclus Catfish not the same fish? I though about this today because I was searching for Otocinclus on the "Tropical fish species by common name" thing and it came up with both Otocinclus and Otocinclus Catfish. If somebody could answer this for me that would be great.

Okay, thank you! I just got confused because there were two Otocinclus profiles that were pretty much the same but had different names. Thanks again!

Otos are a genus with several different species that are very similar. That might be the reason there are several different profiles but practically, you treat them the same.
