rearanging tank inhabitants

ok 3 tanks in concern

tank 1 10 gallong blue ram couple, drawf puffer, otos, shrimp glass
tank 2 5 gallon blue ram fy acrylic
tank 3 1 gallon beta acrylic

now, I am adding a brustlenose tothe 10 gallon, a planted tank. I want to move the otos, will they mess up an acryilic tank like a pleci does with scratching the glass, I want them in the 5 gallon along with the shrimp

now, do I move the puffer into the 5 gallon with the otos and shrimp, and raise the fry in the 10 gallon with their parents....if the mom GBR is a bad mom, I have a 29 she can go into while they grow up.

or, do I put the beta intothe 5 gallon with the otos and shrimp, leave the puff in the 10, and to parentless ry raising in the 1 gallon until they are large enough for my 5 gallon to grow out more and eventually into my 29 gallon or get sold?

I just finished decorating the 5 gallon for a real inhabitant, would look nice with either puffer or beta, the 1 gallon if used for fry will be a bare bottom, heated/filtered tank

I am ready to rearrange inhabitants....well except the three fry I have atm, may be to small to move, but it is unlikely they will survive anyways, I dont have food small enough for them have been feeding powedered flake for the past week or so though, and about 3 out of 12 are still alive they hatched a week ago

I'm not so sure the otos will mess up the acrilic. Maybe others will chime in, but I think otos should be fine in an acrilic tank without scratching it. Anyone else have otos in an acrilic?

I think the beta would probably have a feast with the shrimp.

after a week of the bacteria gettign worse and the meds not working, and after lsing two fish. I took out the ABF< scraped off a thin layer of his skin, and trimmed some of his finnage. He healed up, but hates me now and wont eat live food. :/ but he is alive, and that is what matters the most ot me
