    You could do a school of nano corydoras. I have a school of 7 panda corys, and they're some of my favorites in my 55. They have big personalities and are super active and fun to watch!

    I would go with cories to be honest beautiful fish. Ottos are also another option they do much more cleaning and lean more toward a full veggie diet.

    They do prefer a sand substrate though, as rough gravel can harm them when they're trying to sift it around to look for food.

    Is there a bottom dweller that can have gravel?

    The Otocinclus catfish would be ok with gravel. They're also a schooling fish, so you should get 5 or 6, though you could probably do 3 if you have to.

    Depending on the gravel corys might be able handle it. Sand is the best for the them, but small, rounded gravel is fine too. Oto's would be good as would a clown pleco or two. Personally, Id switch out the gravel for sand (really not hard) and toss a school of corys in there. False Juliis, Peppered, Pandas, etc. They are a FUN little fish and worth it.
