suggestions for sand sifter?

just setup a low-tech 5.5g tank, current inhabitants are endler male, female guppy and 1 florida flag fish (not sure if these will be permanent inhabitants yet especially the flag) plus some Cryptocoryne (long stem/leave variety forget the name) and some mini chain sword with nice plastic "stump" in back corner for hiding. I have a sand bottom, about 1.5". would like to get something to sift and keep bottom clean - wanna maintain that pure white look :-)

tank-mates will be few (current fish and/or some shrimp), CO2 will be Excel, lighting is 10w coralife (may upgrade to 15). I was thinking of adding MTS but worried about population boom with them. have some small red ramshorns in there but dont expect them to sift. any other suggestions of something small/peaceful to keep bottom clean and filtered?
