[APD] dead otos...

What seems to kill otos fast?  I set up a 20gal tank ~5weeks ago.  I put one in and it did okay for a while, then died.  I put four more in last Wed and all died.  NO3 is 20ppm, NO2 is .5ppm, pH around 7.2.  GDA is starting to cover the walls.  Moderately planted.   1 Bumblebee cat, five neons, 6 2" rainbows, ghost shrimp and a blue Gourami.  Any ideas?

Otos are very selective algae eaters and even with the right stufff, it takes an army for them to eat much. Otoh, you'd be hard pressed to have enough of them grazing off of leaves to harm the leaves. Otooh, they're cute little buggers and make a nice adddition to most planted tanks.
