Corys and Ottos

I want to restock my 120G. I need Ottos for algae control, but I like Corys. Are the two compatible?

My two favorite fish! I have both in my tank and they are fine together.

Mine get along just fine. Both like to be in groups so get several of each. I've got 8 Cories and 4 Ottos in a 34g.
