Try a bushnose catfish!
Bushnose catfish ( Ancistrus sp. ) is a GREAT algae eater. It only grows about 3-5 inches at most, and is VERY good at eating algae. Along with this, it is quite peaceful, and will not touch your plants, so long as it has enough food, but it is able to eat brush and beard algae off the leaves of plants WITHOUT damaging them. There are only a few things needed, though. The catfish needs its own cave, and it absolutely has
to have driftwood. This catfish needs to chew on the driftwood in order to stay healthy. Along with algae wafers or chips, try to feed it fresh vegetables, too. Also, for some reason, they love french cut beans.
Anyways, this should solve your problem. Remember to thank me if you found this helpful!
