I'd go with glass shrimp. They get about 1 1/2 to 2 inches long

Your somewhat limited with the size of your tank, but you could either have two otocinclus catfish, or up to 5 ghost shrimp.

But, you should NOT get any of these animals if your tank isn't cycled. They are all very sensitive.

Ghost shrimp. Otos exclusively eat algae and therefore are pretty useless as cleanup crew. Furthermore they will starve if you run out of algae because they refuse any sort of food, be it algae wafers, boiled veggies, etc.
