Not a bad idea. They do GREAT with similar sized nano fish as well though if you wanted to go that route, mine do great with the fish listed in my tank journal.

drop some algae wafers in, watch the swarm.

very minimal on the bioload.

agreed! I love the stocking list - but be sure to heavily, heavily plant the tank!
