With a tank that size you could get 1 and possibly 2 more otos. It depends on how many plants you have and you may need to feed them something more than just the algae in the tank.

They will eat green algae off the glass and plants but not so much thread or black brush algae. If you feed them algae wafers as well then you are in pretty good shape.

I use the Hikari ones myself. I'm sure there are other good ones as well.
