You could do dragon goby or some other type of goby

Olive nerite snails would help or maybe ghost shrimp or both. Unless you're keeping puffers

I keep buying nerites but they won't hatch out in 1.010 density. My ghost shrimp were quickly consumed.

Maybe there a suitable marine worm . . .

There are actually some brackish water catfish and even brackish water plecos, most are hard to find in the hobby-- or in the case of the plecos, hard to find them correctly identified. Two that aren't are the coral catfish (Plotosus lineatus) and Columbian Shark. Problem with them, if you don't have a big tank, is both of these get big.

I never bought a bottom fish, but playing with the salinity I found the mollies and guppies breeding readily.

The mollies are cleaning up the bottom a lot. The monos are eating off the bottom too now, once I found a food they like a lot.
