My tank don't have much algae for my Otocinclus to feed on....Does anybody know if Otocinclus will feed on algae wafer? If not, what else can I feed the fish with?

Yes they will feed on algae wafers. They will eat fish flakes as well but algae is their no. 1 food source. Check to make sure they bellies stay nice and rounded.

Mine like vegetables a lot, zucchini and cucumber seem to be their favorite. Algae wafers are good too but my ancistrus clean those up before the ottos get a chance to see them. I usually attach a half pealed zucchini with a veggie clip in the evening and it's all gone within 24 hours, but I have a lot of anchistrus now, I used to use slices before they multiplied so much.
