Your tank is technically not really a community tank but is more of a semi-aggressive. Feel free to get something colorful and nice to look at. Go with a clown loach, rainbow shark, redtail shark, pictus catful, etc. A pair of cories does an amazing job at keeping gravel clean of uneaten food. I do like the point mentioned earlier that these fish are not "scavengers" and must be fed. My favorite fish in my tank is my dinosaur bichir and he is always rummaging for leftover frozen foods and he even eats flakes, which is rare. Crabs work well too but they are escape artists and will try to get other fish. They arent the best at catching them but I have had a 2 inch fidler crab take down a 3.5 inch gourami once. The bottom feeders in my tank include clown loach, redtail shark, 2 spotted corries and a pleco. I had 3 otto cats but my dinosaur bichir ate them
whoops. Everyone gets a long great tho.
