I think you could add some chromis. They're good and clean little guys.

I would say 3-5, as they like to be in an odd number. They're a little finicky. I have 2 in my 55 and my brother only has 1. They started out with full schools and the healthiest ones survived. That's common, my LFS doesn't even do guarantees on the little guys. So, just a heads up on that. I'm wanting to add some more, but they will do okay if something happens to cut their school back. I love the movement and colors they add to a tank. Plus, they're peaceful.
