While, yes, madtoms are great for smaller tanks since many never get over 5'', I'm afraid ChunkyLover will not be able to get these imported into the UK. While some North American fish have been introduced there, I doubt any of them are suitable for a 35L tank.
I wonder if something like a few corys would interest you. I may be wrong, but I think there are some cories that do just fine in unheated tanks (remember, unheated tanks is not the same thing as cold water tanks). The only problem is that they need to be in groups. I fear you may be in a pickle and you choice of bottom feeders is quite limited in a tank that size...

+ 1 to Aeon, You are not going to see anything approaching their natural behavior when kept solo.
What temp is this tank?
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

Also, while it may be controversial... ime, cories are very active fish that need more floor space than a ten gallon tank can offer
