P.S. sorry for bombarding you guys with questions, just want to make the best decision.
All so-called "algae" eaters only eat specific algae, and there are several types of algae than nothing will eat (except snails or shrimp perhaps). Corys do not eat algae; they may graze through it looking for tiny bits of food, but they do not eat algae itself.
If you tell us the type of algae, or post a photo, we can help further. Algae "on the gravel" sounds like cyanobacteria, and nothing eats that.
