Mine eat regular tablet and pellet food that I put in for the Corydoras and Whiptail and Farlowella. I have always found that provided otos have algae at first (or they will starve), once they get it basically eaten they are quick to find the tablet food on the bottom. I have five otos in my 115g and I usually don't see them except during the moring feed when they are all lined up with the corys across the bottom, or waiting on low plant leaves, knowing the food is about to arrive.
Another comment, I would get one or two more if you want otos. They, like corys, are social shoaling fish that always fare better in groups, I've had good luck with just two. You have room, they are small fish. They will also readily spawn if you have male and female. I had three in a former 90g setup, then one day I noticed five, two slightly (but not much) smaller than the other three. I didn't add them, so spawning is the only option. The five I have now spawn frequently, though nothing has yet managed to survive.
