What would be a good scavenger fish to keep in a large enough aquarium with an 8 inch Albino Oscar and a 6 inch Green Severum to clean the bottom of the tank

Loaches, plecos, corydoras, synodotis species among others.

I reckon a good sized pleco or pictus catfish would probably do you a good service. I'm a big fan of both.

Nice, i've always wanted to try out the pictus catfish but wasnt sure on whom to keep it with if i were to get one of any of the species the two of u suggested they need somewhere to hide right?

Cats and plecos tend to be nocturnal so, yes, they'd definitely want a couple of caves they can duck into.
