Assuming you are regular in the weekly partial water change of 30-40%, a couple more bloodfins would be OK. Otos should be in groups, or at least 2-3, and a couple more would also be fine. You don't mention live plants, but if there are live plants that's even better.

Excellent. Then 2 otos and 2-3 bloodfins are fine. Enjoy.
