Bristlenose (bushy nose), Pit Bull, and Rubber lipped are just a few that stay between 3 and 5 inches.
Bristlenose are the most hardy IME. I have never gotten a Rubber Lipped from PetSmart to live.
I am going to try the Pit bull next, they are supposed to be great at algae and don't eat plants from what I heard, but destroy any and all algae and detritus.
