Cleaner Fish

I'm looking for an odd ball fish that could clean up the tank and eat any leftovers. Any ideas anybody?

What you want is a bottom feeder. How big is the tank

What fish are in the tank currently? In a 35 gallon I would recommend a nice group of Cory cats or Kuhli loaches. either 6 Cory's or 6 kuhlis should clean up all the little scraps.

BN Plecos are oddball and one would do fine in a 35g. They are omnivores so they will eat anything. Mine love shrimp pellets. You need to supply them with driftwood to chew on though. Cories are always good too but not so oddball.

Bristle nose plecos are pretty common. Green phantom plecos are great fish

Depending on your current stock, peacock eels are cool and oddball-ish.

Peacock eels are social so at least two eels would be best
