For that many fish in that small of a tank you need to change 100% every day.

You don't want to do a 100% in a tank where the fish in the tank (mainly otos) NEED an established tank that has been fully cycled.. oto can be a tricky fish for most to keep alive for any long period of time.

BUT, you can keep those in a 10 gallon as long as the tank is cycled, and has a great number of live plants- the plants will be a food source that is needed by the oto, as well as it will help in keeping the tank healthy to where you can do just partial water changes per week. It is recommended to have them in larger tanks, but if done correctly, a 10-15 gallon is possible.

**There will always be a difference in opinions, and some people believe in strict guidelines. Nothing wrong with that at all, but I will be honest in what is possible when it comes to caring for fish. I recommend though that if one does want to take a chance when it comes to tanks/fish, then they go the extra mile and do what it takes to make it safe and healthy.
- I am not promoting placing the cories/otos in a 5 gallon, a 10 would be absolute minimum.
