Just make sure everyone has their own hiding spot(s).

Bought that barrel decor bc the hubby liked it n wanted it placed there so that added a spot.. its not as small as it looks the bigger cories fit it fine with room to grow.
The otos usually hide on the plants or on the top of that rock piece n the left corner ..

Added some leftover slate to the 55g while i was thinking about it..

Did a 50% WC yesterday & fixed all the things I didn t like about my aquascape. Then today took some water back out to fix what I still wasn t happy with. It s almost there but will control myself & quit upsetting the fish until next weeks PWC. Hoping to get 6 Sterbai Cory s this week & 2 Koi Angels next week. So close to being done! Who laughed at that ?

Instead of barrels have you considered different diameter Cholla wood? You can attach moss or plants and then it provides a hiding place and more natural looking option.
