I'm looking for bottom feeding fish to do clean-up in my 90g tank. I have Angels, Tetras, and 8 rabbit snails, so that rules out most loaches. I don't want a pleco, bc they somehow seem to sh*t more than they eat. I'd like something large/efficient enough that I don't need to buy a dozen of to do the job.

Does anyone have suggestions for something that fits this criteria?

Thanks!

Cory cats would be best imo. Better for cleanup than loaches and not as high waste to cleanup ratio as some other cats.

Nor many fish that clean more than they poop. I know you said not pleco but bristlenose are the best, 2 or 3 would probably keep your whole tank clean and they stay under 4 inches. But around here 3 would still cost you $50. Three ID no magic fish that's cheap and does all the work
