bottom scavanger

Folks,
I removed all my fish awhile ago for shrimp. (I kept 10 neons) The shrimp didnt take too well and I only have a few left.
Question-Can anyone recommend a bottom scavenger that wont uproot my dwarf clover, baby tears-etc?
I had a few Albino cats and Botia's but them really dug into the Eco complete and upset the shallow rooted dwarf clover--I have some Hydrocotyle Verticillate that also has shallow roots.

Thanks

Well you could still do shrimp but I think they need a pH above 7.2 and they need a high GH and KH which you should have with the plants. This can be done and still have high enough levels of CO2 to help the plants but I don;t know if it is really feasible to get it to and keep it above 30ppm with such a high pH.

MTS should fit the bill without causing too much trouble. check the barter/trade forum, I'm giving them away.
