Wondering if people had suggestions for any substitutes for cory catfish group for the bottom of a 29 gallon.

I'm just not set on the idea of a school of fish on the bottom... was hoping that i could get a larger group of mollies or swords, something like that and then have one or two fish that live on the bottom...
