I beg to differ...I'm looking at it right now and it simply advises to keep at least 4 corys and keep a cover on a betta tank.

Alright, I'm getting mixed responses from every direction it feels like.
My tank is not going to please everyone no matter what I do, but I'd like what is best for the fish.

So far, with my current regime, and my biweekly water tests have shown no detrimental signs for months. My 3 otocinclus are fat, my betta is happy and blowing bubble nests.
I only wanted to know if I could add more otos to make sure my current otos were happy, so...

SUMMARY: Please only comment further if you have (1) previous experience with owning otos, or (2) have a link to a website with information on oto care.

Sigh...

Sorry you feel this way OP - your set up is fine with what you have. All I suggest is making sure you give the ottos a bit more food if you are not doing so now. If you are giving them veggies and wafers then ignore what I just wrote.

I would add in a couple more plants if you wish to add in one or two more otos.

But if you decide to keep the tank the way it is now, then it is just fine - those plants will grow and it is a good home for what you have now. :)

I haven't had otos for over a decade, but the care hasn't changed any in their needs - most otos come from the wild as they tend to be a bit difficult to breed and to a point, keep alive/healthy. Why the little larger water change and food is recommended. The size of the tank is small - but not too small for 3 ottos and a betta. Keep doing what you are doing and all should be fine :)

Otos are very sensative espically to nitrates.
