Looks like you have happy fish in there. A suggestion: You might remove the pirate ship. I understand that people often like to have themes in their tanks but you shouldn't sacrifice swimming room in order to do so. If I were you I'd remove that ship to give them more horizontal swimming space. Everything else is good though(it would be more convincing though if you had sand instead of bright gravel)

Looks pretty cool!
Have you considered upgrading to maybe a 20 gallon? Glass cats should really be kept in groups of 6 minimum (which the 10 has no more room for) and the oto would probably enjoy a few friends.. It's also important to supplement your oto with algae wafers if you aren't, because there probably isn't enough algae in the 10 gallon to support him. :)

thanks! I do wanna upgrade to a 75 gallon early next year so I will move the glass cats into there and add at least 3 more, also to everyone thanks for the suggestions
