Will this overstock my tank?

    I have a 50 gallon long aquarium with a 12 gallon wet/dry filter.
    20-30% water changes every other week
    50% water changes every third water change
    Ammonia/nitrate/nitrite is stable at 0ppm for previous 4 months (tested before water changes)

    I have very hard water (it's like liquid rock!)

    Currently there is:
    6 Tiger Barb
    3 Albino Barb
    3 Long finned Rosy Barb
    2 Mystery Snails

    I am planning on adding 3 more Long finned Rosy Barb. (SO, very pretty)

    Cory fish have really caught my eye. I would like to get 5-6 for my tank.

    I have three Oto's that I was thinking of moving over to this tank also.

    Would this overstock my tank?

    Sounds fine.

    Just stock them a few at a time. I.e. do your rosys, then otos, then corys, maybe a week apart? Just to give your filters/BB time to catch up? Sounds like a good setup though! Feel free to post some photos.

    You should be quarantining them anyway, so get your first group, move your otos in while you wait on them, then move them in and get your next group, etc.

    Seems to be a god collection for a 50 gallon tank
