Yup, both raphael cats and pleco's are very suitable.
If you want a prehistoric-looking beast, go for pleco's. If yu want a fish that craps less than it eats, get a raphael cat.

Both of the Raphael catfishes (spotted and striped) are pretty common and cheap, they should carry them at your local chain fish/pet store. Last time I checked the spotted Raphaels were about $5 and the stripeds ones are about $7.

Hmm.. I dont think I've ever seen Rafael Catfhises in my area (either that or I havent noticed), but it would look better having a new kind of fish.

Bristle-nose plecs are the way to go... far superior to lazy ass common plecs. They eat like its their job.. and it is. Plus they are very fast, agile and aware.

The first bottom scavenger I would try with a Piranha would have to be a Raphael Catfish, these guys hunt while it's dark and hide when there's light, when it's dark your Piranhas probably can't n0tice it.

Piranhas live in mirky waters, and do not usually have much light to see with, my guess is they are pretty good at hunting in the dark, but the raphiel cats are really well armoured and I doubt that piranhas would be interested in one unless they were really hungry

Crayfish are cheap and pretty good at hiding. Mine eventually get eaten but are well worth the 79 cents I pay for them.
