Water change tonight along with testing again. Should I do anything about the pH?
Not at this time certainly. When fish are recovering from something, the less stress the better, and fiddling with water params is stressful. Something is being added to your source water to raise pH [this is common in areas with soft water, I have it here] but we can look into this later.
Otos are not hardy fish, so I wouldn't jump to conclusions over losing one. Again, stability is the key, until we can be fairly certain things are settled.
