Re: Otos vs. CAE
Okay, I'll admit my deplorable ignorance.... I thought Otos and CAEs were the
same thing. After you sent this, I did try to find the difference out on the
Krib web site, but it was not responding today. Is there another site that
folks can recommend so I can learn the difference? And a site where I can
learn how to tell a real SAE? I *think* I have three Chinese algae eaters,
or otos..... arghghhh! I'm so confused!

How did Otos get into this discussion? I certainly didn't mention them. I
was talking about CAEs (*Gyrinocheilus aymonieri*), a notoriously vicious
and misnamed "algae" eater.
