glofish tank bottom dwellers?

Hi. I"m relatively new to fish ownership. I have a neww 20g tank with a gravel substrate and a school of glofish. I need to add fish (or other creatures) that will help keep the tank clean and control the algae but I have no idea what would be best.

Mine are actually GloFish. I believe they are genetically enhanced zebra danios.

What other fish do you have with them? I've never owned danios before so I don't really know much about their behavior towards other fish. Like I said above, I need to put in some bottom dwellers but don't know what kind would be best. Do you have any suggestions?

ottos and rcs are good in controlling algae plus you don't need a group of otto a single fish will do. then theres hillstream loaches.not very hardy but really nice looking algae eater.

Thanks. I'll look into the ottos. I think I'll avoid the loaches right now if they aren't hardy. I think I'd better get more experience with aquarium care. This is only the third tank I've ever had I've my own. The first one i didn't have very long due to a long-distance move and the second was full of guppies that seemed to take care of itself (especially in regards to reproduction ).
