How many ottos in a 29
I know the tank will have a few male guppies, and cory catfish. If you have any other stocking suggestions let me know.

I'd say no more than 6-8, especially of you don't have a big algae problem

I go 1 oto for every 10 gallons

I think it depends on how often you plan to feed them. I have 10ish in my 29 and they are fine.

I'm not sure how well GBRs would do with guppies but they are my personal favorite freshwater fish lol relatively peaceful.

I got 10+ in my 15G. It is heavily planted. They are not stupid, they will feed on shrimp/fish food if there is not enough algae for them to eat.

I think the number of otos depends on the setup and how much algae is present.

I don't think I would add anything more, but I would up the numbers to maybe 8 each of the o-cats, the neons and the CPDs.
