IMO bettas & otos have small bioloads. I don't overfeed my betta and if I did his bioload would be much more
. I'd think you'd be fine keeping 2-3 otos with your betta, as long as you do weekly w/c of at least 30%. How long has your tank been set up and do you have algae growing in it now?? Otos tend to be delicate, prefer an established tank w/ stellar water parameters, and are known to starve due to their preference for algae. The only food I offer that my otos will take is spinach. Luckily the tank is planted and there is algae readily available.
