There is nothing more beautiful than a thriving saltwater tank, but these tanks can be expensive to set up and maintain.
Starting a new tank can be time-consuming, especially if you have to choose all of your own equipment.
Also known as oto cats, otocinclus catfish are some of the smallest aquarium fish out there and also some of the best algae eaters.
