No worries, with that much plants and the Amanos the maximum you will see is a slight rise in NO3 in a week, maybe a minisule amount of foam (a few bubbles tops) and nothing else. But in a tank so clean, I am not surprised it died. There is basically no biofilm and aufwuchs, little guy must have starved to death.

This is not about bad husbandry, you got me wrong. Otos are prone to that problem. Most Otos that die just starved, even with supplementory feeding. That's all and not your fault.
