I would look into feeding and water changing (or lack thereof) here. cloudy water is generally caused by algae/bacterial blooms which in turn are generally caused by having too many excess nutrients in the water. eliminate the excess and you'll eliminate the bloom. UV sterilization would also help but is rather uncommon in a tank of that size.
We have 2 cory's in our 20g that stay on the bottom and eat almost all the food that makes it to the bottom.Im not sure if they are catfish but they look like catfish kinda..They got whiskers like a catfish and they sift around the gravel looking for food, looks like they use there whiskers to aid in finding it.They never bother any of the other fish in the tank and are very peaceful.Might be to small for what you are looking for tho the ones we have are about 2 1/2 to 3 inches long.
