Stocking new tank!


I'm about to setup a 15g tank and thinking about what I'd like to stock it with. In another tank, I currently keep Celestial Pearl Danios, Cardinal Tetras, 2 Cory Hastatus, and 1 Oto.
For my 15g, if I can catch them I'd like to add the 2 Cory Hastatus and when the season rolls around add maybe 5 more of their own kind. Other fish I've been considering are Chili Rasboras, and also maybe a solo Dwarf Gourami.
On my last trip to my LFS I saw some very interesting fish that I don't know much about: Banjo Catfish, Hillstream Loach, some very small Botia loaches, freshwater Flounder, and Bumblebee Goby.
Any experiences or thoughts on these fish would be great, as would any other suggestions! Thanks.

I think your school sizes for the cory and oto are no good, try added larger groups, they will do much better

I agree with you. That's the reason the Corys are going in the new tank, so I can add more. As for the Otos I initially had two and after quite sometime one died out of the blue and the only reason I could figure is because there wasn't enough to eat in my 10g tank. As much as I tried they never would feed on blanched veggies.
