bottom feeders

I don't know what kind of bottom feeders I should get for my 15 gallon. I had a few juli and panda Cory cats but I'm not a fan of them. I currently have:

15 gal

2 gold dust mollies (male and female)
1 dalmatian molly (female)
1 red wag platy (female)
1 sun burst molly (female)
1 gold mystery snail
2 baby dalmatian mollies (2m old)

10 gal

About 16 sun burst platies (few weeks old)

all suggestions are welcome!
