What to keep as killifish companion?

I'm looking for something to keep with killifish to help the tank remain clean! Like shrimp or something that stays small - under 2.5 inches and doesn't need a giant tank. Thanks!!

    Perhaps a couple Corydoras under your golden wonders. Probably a school of 6 is not a viable idea. The Corys get what the sometimes sloppy lineatus don't chase to the tank bottom. And Corys are very fond of killie eggs.

    The really best companion is a gravel vacuum used once a week as a part of that 50% partial water change. And naturally that is "Do as I say, not as I have succeeded in doing very often." ;)

    So many killies, so many neat aquarists, so little time.

    We Really need to know what kind of killi fish and what size tank.

    most bottom feeders are either quite large, or schooling fish.

    Some killis get very aggressive.

    I think that shrimp would be at a big risk of being eaten. nerite snails would be a safe addition to most tanks.
