20g tank

We're getting a 20 gallon tank and, once it is cycled, putting a male betta into it.

We're having trouble on figuring out what we can put in with it and how many of them. Sometimes I see Otos, sometimes I see people saying don't put in otos, can you have Otos as well as Cory?

AqAdvisor says not to put albino corycats with bettas. I'm so confused!

If you want corydoras catfish you need sand. Oto's need a well established aquarium with lots of algea, so don't put them in early. i would have a school of 6 corydoras, 3 ottos, and your betta. Instead of otto's you could put in an albino BN pleco.

I would go Albino BN. You can add them earlier and they are much hardier.
