Need Help Getting A Clean Tank

If anyone can give me some advice on which scavengers or snails, or any kind of creature that I can put in my tank to further the cleanliness, please tell me. I have a pretty weak filter, and it is not cleaning the tank as I would like it to. The problem with the scavengers is that they too create waste, so if someone knows about one that retains most of its food, hehe, then I would like to know about it. Also, if someone knows if those real small guppie-like goldfish contaminate the tank. I keep them in there because my catfish eats them occasionally, but not very often. The guy at the place said that they release chemicals, and make the tank dirty, but I don't trust him. Thanks for the help.
