your tank sounds overstocked. how big are your schools? otos are shoaling/schooling fish. they are delicate and need atleast 3 to thrive. i'd get a nerite. i didn't like snails either. but i really like my zebra nerite.

Ohh! I do! I do! Bristlenose plecostomus only get up to 4 inches. I have one with my betta Winter. Good luck! :)

Secure the lid more and Amano are great. In My expeirence extra cleaning and live plants really help.

It would be pushing it, yeah. Bristlenoses get like 5inches max so it would be a good temporary tank for a pleco until it could get into a 20gal. But you wouldn't be able to have much else.

From what I have heard getting an algae eater for an algae problem is a bad idea becuase the algae is eventually gone.

For the betta, 5 neons, and 5 harley rasbs in a 10gal, AqAdvisor says that your tank is 91% stocked. I don't even think you can add any more.

This is also true. In big tanks with only one algae eater it might not be too bad but you'll be supplementing lots of other food (which you should do anyway!).

In all honestly, unless you get a bigger tank (Petco is having their $1 a gallon sale!!!!!) you're probably better off scraping and vacuuming for now. Or minimizing your lighting if your plants are low/med light.
