No fish really eats fish poop. Most "cleaner fish" just add more like plecos. The cleaning of fish waste falls upon you, their lifeline. As the aquarist, it's your job to keep their home clean and happy with weekly water changes and gravel vaccing. To really sum it up, goldfish are cold water and most bottom fish are tropical like corydoras and other small catfishes or loaches. An army of small amano or cherry shrimp will act as your uneaten food cleanup crew, though the poo is up to you. a dojo loach would work to clean up uneaten food if you had a larger tank, however 4 goldfish is a heavy load to be adding more fish.
