Roving cleanup crew for divided tank?

I am putting together a 40 gallon breeder divided tank (not for breeding just the best tank I could find at Petco $1 per gallon sale) Today I was wondering if there is a bottom feeder that has a lower bio load that I could put in the tank and rotate from divider to divider to assist with keeping the tank clean. I am pretty open to anything. Any suggestions?
I will put 6-8 Betta fish in the 36x18x16 tank. Please let me know how many of whatever you suggest would be ok.

Also I plan to have a few sponge filters in the tank (I have 6 I need to find how much is needed) and I also have an 2 aquatech filters I was going install only one since I have sponge filters. There will plenty of cover available but most of it will be in silks, ornament and the rest in low light live plants.

ghost shrimp/ red cherry shrimp / corydoras if bioload is a big big concern get the pygmy ones

With that many dividers, I don't think there will be enough footprint for cories. Shrimp or snails would definitely be the best bet.

I was going to move them from section to section but that probably would just be stressful for the fish in the end

A couple of snails might be best. You can manually move them and they shouldn't mind too much. They really attack algae like crazy.
