jmiller asked about otocinclus.  in my experience, they are rather delicate
and are all wild caught, since captive breeding is not easy.  i would say try
getting a larger group next time, they might take a while to adjust, they also
like being in a group.  also, try to look for bigger and healthier looking
ones, they all seem to be starved when they arrive in petshops.  i have heard
of someone breeding them in a tank that was sunlit and full of green algae.

they are great algae eaters for cleaning leaves taht may be too weak to
support a bigger fish.  however, they will not eat the dreaded black brush or
hair algae.
