I had 3 otos and a male betta in my 5 1/2 gal. here at work and he never
bothered them. I have a really thick strand of crystal val in half of the
tank that the otos hide in and I also put a mirrored back on the tank. The
betta spent so much time worrying about his reflection he never bothered
the otos.
