I'd like to add some more fish too if you don't think I would be over stuffing the tank. What else would be good in addition to the fish I have?
I would get two more otos, a trio is minimum for shoaling fish.
Tube is fine. It needs replacing about every 12 months; it will still be lighting, but the intensity will be gone.
There is room for more fish, but stay with small (dwarf) species or things will look out of balance. Otos are not really substrate fish, so you could add a group of these, maybe some corys? A group of five would be nice. Several species are in our profiles. As for upper fish, check the dwarf species in the Cyprinids section of the profiles. There is a dwarf rainbow under the Athernids. And the Ember Tetra under characins. When checking these species, notice the water parameters as many are wild caught and specific.
