That tank looks great! Make sure the rhizome of the anubais plant isn't buried or it will rot and die! This has happened to a friend of mine...

Yeah 1 oto for now, I am in the process of growing algae on some river rocks so I will have sufficient food for the little dudes. Hopefully I will get 2 more after they grow, that way I don't have to worry about them not eating well, though my current fish readily takes algae pellets. Thanks for the concern, but no worries, I love my little dude and want him/her to be happy :)

How big is your tank? It maybe too small for atleast 3 otos and a betta.

It's a 5 gal.. I was doubtful that I could keep 3 otos and a betta... would like all 4, but I don't want to overstock. I wouldn't mind growing more algae to support the little guys, but I don't want to squish them in the tank either since I will not be able to get a larger tank until we move to our house... we live on the third floor and I do not want to move a large aquarium down those stairs and all the fish that go with it. Thanks for the input.

A 10 shouldn't be too difficult to move. But being on the 3rd floor would make it much more difficult to move it. A rectangle 5 gallon maybe better as far as space is concerned for the 4 of them.

Otos need groups of 5 in 20 gallons. Swap it for a nerite.
