It gets some indirect sunlight during the day but not very much. Would one snail make a difference? or can I put 3 Otos in a 5 gallon?

I have 3 otos in Flair's 5 gallon tank. Everybody does just fine. The otos do their own thing and Flair does his. How long are you leaving your light on for? You may need to cut back on the amount of time the light is on.
