Good bottom feeders?

I have a 110 gallon sa/ca cichlid tank and was planning on getting rid of my convicts, jewel and green terror to make room for some loaches to clean the bottom of the tank. Any suggestions?

Most synodontis cats work well in cichlid tanks to my knowledge. I personally like the Angelicus's and eupterus's and from what I've heard those can work in a cichlid tank like yours if there's enough caves, wood and general spots to retreat if the cichlids just get a little too rowdy one day.

With those, not much might work

You can get some mbuna, or some more peaceful cichlids
I think synodontis Petricola will work

If you get rid of the convict, terror and jewel I believe quite a bit can be done. However with those extreme trouble makers in it I'm siding with goldfish boy, very little if anything can go in the bottom.

That's pretty stocked. You were definitely very overstocked before. Did you have any territory problems? Are these fish all small right now? Maybe just a syno eupretus if you really want and your water parameters are good.

EDIT:
Forgot it was a 110 gallon, my bad!
For some reason I was thinking 55gallon. Sorry everyone. That stock is still high but I personally don't think it's overstocked.
