I know that siamese algae eaters are a good choice as they arwe know to even eat green hair algae, which many algae eaters do not touch. Just need to be aware when you purchase because many chinese algae and flying foxes look almost identical but are not siamese, or even eat algae.
I too like ottos but in such a large tank you would need a fair amount, IMO like 1-2 per ten gallons. I have two siamese and they non-stop cleaning machines... + grow rather quickly.
Also, I keep them with Discus, so yes they are peaceful fish, and no I have not seen them sucking on the mucus that is on a discus fish body. They do not jolt around the tank but rather move gracefully from one spot to the next.
