Just about every fish likes "buddies". I've noticed the oto's tend to swim around with other fish relatively sized as well. 1 or 2 would be fine in that size tank.

My otto is my best friend. I have him in my 10 gal and I haven't had an algea problem in over a year. He seems chubby and happy too so I guess he must get enough to eat.

The crayfish WILL eat the oto. In fact, the crayfish will probably eventually catch and kill every fish in the tank. Not worth the risk. Fish and crayfish just don't mix.
