    First of all I would get at least one more Cory since they like to be kept in a small shoal.  Otos would be good.  If you get four that leaves you with 2 inches, which may or may not be enough to get another Cory depending on the species. If not, I would go with 3 Otos so you can get another Cory.

    no the ten inches is after i get the otos and i dont want to get anymore corys because i already tried that and they did get along the the new cory ended up dieing and the corys are over 10 years old and i cant find any of the same type as they are so more corys are out of the question so i still need ten more inches of fish the otos are included in the 20 inches count but i am kinda stuck on what type of fish to get because i cant seem to find any that will get along with the angels besides livebearers and i would rather not get them and leave them as a last resort or just leave extra space in the tank but if anyboyd can think of a good fish i would really appreiciated it thanks

    dont really want danios as they need to be in large groups and lots of swimming space and i dont have that for them and neons have a very good chance of getting eaten

    i dont have any good suggestions but was just wondering if your guppies get harrassed? i would think a male fancy tailed guppy would attract a male betta.
