Hey! I want to get a good bottom feeder fish for my 55g Fish tank but dont know what will be the most efficient? I want a bottom feeder that will be able to help maintain waste in the gravel. I currently have neon tetras and sword tails.

I completely agree with Fahn. If it's not gonna cause an issue with your livestock (fish who dont like flow) then maybe you can get a powerhead pointed towards the bottom. It may help discourage debris from settling in the gravel and instead get trapped in your filtration system, but it's not 100% guaranteed.

Black worms are about the only thing I know that will help break down waist.

I've been doing Keto to get rid of my waist.

Try turning off your filter when you feed your fish, you'll get a much better idea of how to feed them without half of it settling on the bottom.
