Like it’s smaller cousin, the zebra otocinclus is a terrific scavenger and algae grazer in the aquarium. These fish are best with some natural wood in the fish tank and in thw wild these are schooling fish, so they prefer to swim in groups of three or more. Zebra otocinclus must be wild caught and are fished from the Rio Tigre river in Peru.
