I have found that many fish will forage the bottom of the tank for food after what's been offered on the surface is consumed ,or otherwise falls to the bottom of the tank. I have also found that some territorial fish that frequent the bottom regions of the tank ,have little tolerance at times, for small fish which invade their territory whether searching for food, or just generally nosing around. Were it me,(and it ain't) I would go with the bristlenose.They bother no one,and are more capable of fending off fish such as red tail shark and even some small cichlids. They also do better than fair job of eating algae and cleaning the bottom of the tank.
