Best Bottom Feeder, Opinions

Anyone have any suggestions on bottom feeders for a 15 gallon tall (15.6US gal). It is going to be a community tank. (Possible pearl gourami/guppys) I was thinking Kuhli loaches but I have no experience with them. any suggestions on a bottom feeder would be great.. Thanks

I'm going to skip on the panda's I'm trying to get them for my 30 gallon community. I will look into dwarf chain loaches I haven't seen them around these parts though.

If you can find them, I promise you, you will not be sorry. They don't grow any larger than two inches, are really cute and very fun loving. Also, even while active little critters they don't bother other fish in the tank. An all around great little loach. You will NEVER see a snail in your tank if you get them. They are voracious snail eaters. I'd imagine they'd do the same with other inverts so if you get them don't plan on keeping tiny shrimps, like RCS.
