depends on the species you pick, there are some that barely get an inch and a half and others that get several inches. They do best in groups.

Corys or shrimp. My amanos eat the food as soon as it hits the substrate.

If you have room then I agree with one of the many species or corys, but the best bet is not to overfeed as there should be no leftovers. If your feeding flake you might consider switching to pellets as there is less waste and provides better nutrition to the fish.
