Only thing else I would worry about is what kind of small algae eater are you looking into? Some that are small when bought will get huge later in life.
BTW welcome to TFK, and as you are new here I was wondering if you know about cycling your tank before adding fish?
I did cycle. I haven't added platys yet, is there somehting you would recommend instead? when I last tested my pH it was around 7...as for the algea eater...i said small meaning one that would stay small...not a pleco...the tropical fish store recommened a catfish variety, there's not enough algea yet in my tank and they advised me to wait a bit longer....also one of my plants had a stowaway mystery snail on it.
