Not sure on stocking for a tank that includes a betta as I keep mine singly. But I did want to say that adding anymore otos now would be a mistake. They require an established tank in order to thrive and you indicate your tank is not yet cycled. I've heard & read countless experiences regarding otos expiring pretty quickly if water parameters aren't stellar and if a constant food source is not available. If it was me (and it's not!) I'd hold off on adding the otos for a few months. Definitely add more otos once the time comes as your solo guy WILL need the companionship of other otos in order to truly thrive.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
