To much??

OK, so here is the plan for my sorority tank. :)

Heavily planted, already has lots of hiding spots! BTW, they will be LIVE plants. 20g filter. 4-5 betta girls, ghost shrimp, and possibly two Otos...I just don't know if that is too much!! It will have live plants, so that should help with the bio load, and a filter that is very powerful... I just don't know ... Any thoughts?

Thanks!!!

I think it should be okay. Ghost shrimp don't produce much waste. But this is for a 10 gal, right?

betta females grow to 2-2.5 inches
ottos up to 1.5-2 inches
the live plants help enormously
if ur going to do that many, id highly suggest changing 3 gallons a week instead of the typical 10% change a week of only one gallon, should be fine to keep ammonia down
something to think about

Ok thanks!!! I've been researching Ottos all night!! Oh and are ALL Ottos caught in the wild? 'Cause I don't really want to support that...
