Colorful bottom fish?

I am in the process of filling a 55 gallon tank and the only fish I have that spends any time in the bottom area of the tank is a Pleco but I was hoping you all might have ome suggestions for "pretty" bottom fish

Wow...thank you all for the great suggestions....I particularly like....no LOVE the German blue rams... I read up on them and the only concern I have is that I read they are a little timid and I have a particular tetra that likes to ram all the other fish in the tank...do you think this will be a problem? I mean I figure the more fish there are the less often each will get it.

+1 on the gbr. In my experience, I've never met a shy ram. Even as singles they seem to want to rule their tank. They're very entertaining to watch, they're curious and all over the place and completely gorgeous.

Just offer a cave of some sort or a couple hiding spots you will do fine
