otco or ancistrus

I have a 10 gallon with 5 glowlight tetras and 5 neons and was wonder what would be better. I going to be getting a few corys. I have a 29 gallon filter on the tank. I was wondering if i should get a dwarf pleco or a bunch of octo?
Thanks

Can bristlenoses be solitary? Do they need tank mates?

My otos are never in the open, and when they are--the rare times, they panic like the first victims in horror movies to hide away. They are undeniably cute, and I rather enjoy having to work to find them in my tank, but you're potentially never going to really see them.

I would get 3 nice cories and 2 or 3 ottos then i think your tank would look good and you definitly never have to worry about having a lonely fish.
