My favorites, as in effective, and pretty safe with predatory fish, are raphael catfish. Some of them, like the striped and spotted ones, look pretty attractive, have a never-ending appetite and a fairly large mouth to swallow big chunks. And since they are nocturnal, they are really safe with like piranha's, since they are only active when the p's are sleeping.

As far a appearance, my (shared) number one are all those fancy pleco's with great coloration and patterns. Unfortunately, they often are not very hardy, really expensive and not suitable for a tank with predatory fish.

Oh, I like them, but they kinda give me the creeps. If I would drop one in my piranha tank, I would never put my hands in there again, but not because of the piranha's in there

I kinda arachnaphobic (well, it's not that bad, but I frickin' hate spiders and animals that kinda look like them...)

well favorite tank cleaner would be poly cotton wool for scraping algae off of the glass in the front from time to time, but as for fish I was going to say the common pleco, but my P decided to gut its stomach out just now
