Hello. Its nice to hear you are upgradiing your tank. The only things I have to say are that adf do not always do well in community tanks because it can be hard for them to get enough food. Some people have luck with it, some don't. Up to you.
I suggest only getting like 3 otos to start with. They do best in well-established tanks, so wait a bit to add them. If you start with 3, you can see how they do and then consider adding more if you want to.

Ok, ill just do three otos. Also, in your opinion, am i fully stocked or do i have a little room? I was thinking of bringing the schooling fish up to six per group. Or i could add another gourami or rainbowfish. I hear that sometimes planted tanks can handle a higher bioload. P.s. I think i will try the adf's. I have had much luck with them.

I think that upping the schools to 6 would be fine. I wouldn't add another gourami though because they can be territorial and you are getting a bit full anyway.
Yes, planted tanks can handle a bit more bioload, but even if you planted the tank, its still getting pretty full.
