I would say another 2 otos would do well, they like company so your current one will probably be more active if you get him some friends

I agree 2 more should fill it out nicely! I have 3 in a 12 gal and they do well in there!

OK... But then there is the algae part of the tank. Of couse you eventually run out of algae and those algae wafers make one heck of a mess to clean up. (Well, you still have to clean anyways!)

Feeding otos is rarely a problem. The bulk of their diet is actually micro algae, which is always there though we don't see it.

I have otos in my 29 and I have never fed them anything specific to them. They're all happy as clams...

Pygmy cories feel safest when in groups of three or more, so I'd suggest getting a couple more cories.
