I have a 15 with 6 Threadfin Rainbows, 10 Corydoras pygmaeus, 3 ottos, and some unknown number (>10) of cherry shrimp.
Good hardy bottom feeders: Black Kuhli Loaches - 6 if you have the space and a good lid. Regular sized Cories - 3 to 5 (C. anaeus, metae, trilineatus, and paleatus are all good, hardy, and inexpensive. Avoid Bronchis sp.; you won't be able to tell for sure if you got B. splendens which gets to 3" or B. britskii, which gets to 7 or 8".) Smaller Cories - 6 to 10 (C. pymaeus, habrosus, hastatus, guapore, and Apisdoras species.) Ghost Shrimp (not necessarily bullet proof, but dirt cheap.)
What might be less hardy, but certainly more interesting and unusual - Peacock Gudgeons.

Here's another fine tank you've gotten me into.
