I have a 10 gallon tank and I was wondering what else I could put in it to help clean the bottom of the tank. I know there are cories and otos, but I was wondering if there was anything else. If not, which are more entertaining, cories or otos? Thank you.

Mystery and Ramshorn snails are great as well as ghost shrimp.

Otos only clean algae, but cories clean up uneaten food off of the bottom of the tank. I'd say go for three pygmy or pandy cories, and at least two otos. Cories are playful and fun to watch (except mine now like to hide behind a clump of java fern I've added) and otos are pretty amusing, especially if there is a lot of algae in your tank.
