Sounds as if you have green spot algae & green slime algae. Green spot algae is normal in small amounts just keep it scraped off the glass & cut off leaves of plants affected. Green slime algae can be gotten rid of by using E-mycin or blackout.

To keep the algae from coming back you need to get your tank in-balance. Please give your water parameters: PH, KH, N03, P04.

60 watts, of what type lighting?

also increase water changes to 50% weekly.

Otto's eat brown algae only, so they won't help with your algae. No algae eaters will eat slime algae due to the fact that it is toxic.
