Question Tank setup idea

Since our poor girl Lilith passed, we have a whole 10 gallon to our little girl Anna.
I was thinking instead of getting another Betta, I would just get some tankmates instead.
We were thinking about adding 4 Otos and 1 African Dwarf Frog to the tank with her.
I was wondering if that would be a good little setup.
Also, if anyone has a similar setup, could they give me any advice on decor. and the way the tank should be arranged (if that makes sense).
Thanks in advanced!

I think otos would be ok. I'm not sure about the frog.

Yeah, I've been going back and forth with the ADF idea. How about just having the Betta with 5 Otos?

I think 1 betta with 5 otos would be fine.

I like the 5 otos idea too, they are very intersting to watch. Im pretty sure the frog can be housed with the betta but I wouldnt. Ive heard stories about how difficult they are to feed with other tank mates, you even have to hand feed them sometimes and that seems too time consuming for a little guy that wont even move much. After both my leos have died I refuse to ever get a pet that is difficult to get to eat. Which is why I like bettas, they ALWAYS want to eat.
