What algea eaters and bottoms feeders can go with goldfish?

I have a 55G I want some bottom feeders and an algea eater. I was thinking Dojo loaches for bottom feeders and mystery snails for algea eaters.

Both the dojos and snails will do good with your goldfish.
Dojos are some really cute, fun fish.

Apple snails are not effective algae eaters. Do not rely on them to eat the algae for you. Both the snails and dojos however will work just fine with goldfish. I keep the snails with goldfish myself. They need to be supplemented with calcium enriched foods.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
