Many people think a 10g is too small for otos. I think they are fine, but I would only get 2 if you choose that route. I agree with the shrimp and pygmy corys.

I keep 2 in a 10, and I think its fine. But, thats just my opinion. I have also kept trios and I see the 2 in the 10 do all the same behaviors as the trio did in the bigger tank.

I have 2 Amano Shrimp in my tank and I love them! They are constantly feeding on algae and they look really cool. I agree that a 10gal tank will be a bit cramped for 3 otos but in my opinion 2 would probably be ok.
