Also, if you want any type of cory, you must have sand. Sure, people keep them fine with gravel, but if you haven't bought them yet, don't just give semi-good care, give great care. Buy sand if you want, it is really cheap.

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

I really wouldn't get the Otos right at the beginning. They are best introduced to an established tank.
Get cycled, few plants..leave a few spots of algae on the glass here and there.
They can be really sensitive and IMO shouldn't be introduced into an uncycled, or newly cycled tank. They need stable water parameters and a constant source of food.

If you go with Otos, wait a few months before introducing them.

If you want more fish, a 10 gallon is minimum. Snails and shrimp can go in most betta appropriate tanks.
