Very good. You may have to do another water change tomorrow. I think that's the reason you were losing your fish. Hopefully that will stop now.

How big is your tank? It all depends on that.
cory catfish, (but more than 1 hopefully, they like to have a friend or 2) bushynose or bristlenose (I think theyre the same) plecos, ottos, um...that's all I can think of at the moment

If you want something to to clean up the algae and uneaten food, you could do worse than , also known as Sucker Belly Loach.

I have 2 in my tank, they do a pretty good job

Those "suckerbelly" loaches are also called hillstream loaches and are great algae eaters. However, they prefer strong current in the tank, and are really a coldwater fish, so please keep that in mind. Butterfly has some in her tank. She can tell you more. I had one a couple of years ago and they are quite fascinating when you see them, but stay hidden most of the time, at least mine did.
