Help choosing Bottom feeders

Hey need some ideas on what fish to get to help clean the gravel in my 55G tank. I currently have various different types of ram in there so need something that isn't going to spook them, darting round the tank.

TIA

Parky

You could try getting a bristlenose pleco, they get to the length of only 6 inches so you could get 2 or 3

Hands down Cory casts. Pick a few you like. Get about 5 or so. Fun to watch as well.

Corydoras! Friendly as they get. A pleco will compete for cave space. It's OK if you have plenty to go around but I'd only have one of those little poop machines, myself.

When you make reference to a poop machine I take it you mean the pleco?

Yep. I love my bristle but one is plenty. Corydoras are social and need to be in groups.

Thanks seems everyone is in favour of the cory's so I'll take a look at what my LFS has.
