You should get a gH/kH test kit as well as a TDS meter to get a better idea of how clean and soft your water is before attempting to stock oto cats. I’ve never really seen an oto (I’ve kept many) go after generic fish foods found at big box pet stores. They prefer soft natural algae that grows in the tank, fresh veggies such as zucchini slices, and high quality pellets that can be found from specialized online shrimp food sellers like Dennerle/Shrimp King.

    I used RODI water for my oto tank. Didn’t lose a single one out of the ten I bought. As I said in my previous post, you need very soft and acidic water for them to be the most comfortable. You can get gallon jugs of distilled water from a grocery store for less than $1 and mix it with your tap to soften it up.

    Yes, I have 3+ tanks. I can probably get some pictures tomorrow. :)
    It's better to have and not need then to need and not have; this is especially true when you're dealing with fish and you need itch medication.

    About C.pygmaeus and hastatus : those are midwaterdwellers. In my opinion a 15G still is too small for the smaller types Corydoras (behaviourwise and waterquality wise). But okay .
    No Cory, No Glory !!
