Guess I will stick to the little Oto's for algae control on the leaves of the plans. I looked for a few Nerite snails but couldn't find any. I have heard they do a great job in a planted tank. True? Also wouldn't mind a few of the kind of snails that sneak through the substrate?
Malaysian Trumpet Snails. Snail control of algae is minimal, but these snails work their magic in the substrate. I was thinking more of the hatchets for a larger surface area. I had my Marbles in my 33g which is 36 inches long by 12 inches wide, and to me they seemed crowded. Course, I had 20 of them. I would not get less than 9 hatchets. I now have my pygmy hatchetfish (Carnegiella mysersi) in the 33g, but they are very small and delicate; I've five left out of the original 11. The other species in Carnegiella are hardier, though still sensitive.
