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. :-)
