I second the pygmy or dainty (hasbrosus spelling?) corydoras. I have a handful in my 46 and yeah, i never see them but they're great vacuums. I used to have 10 in my 10 gallon with some white clouds.
I also second the plants. The cories like to hide behind/below/in things. Plants help their stress level a lot. Plants also help keep algae at bay.
I feed mine hikari shrimp pellets and I'm sure they eat whatever fish food falls down below.
