grow on leaves and plant stems not necessarily exposed to strong lights. The affected plants are probably suffering deficiency problems and are leaking nutrients back into the water. This algae is considered normal in small quantities. Aquariums with fish such as Siamese Algae Eater, Otos, Amano shrimp, Bristlenose pleco or Mollies will not suffer from this algae. Balanced nutrients will give head start against the algae.
So since the tank is only 10 gallons which of the options would you go with. I really like mollies, otos, and amano shrimp but I am not sure which would be best for a 10 gallon but I am thinking the shrimp.
I agree with shrimp; in a 10g you have little room to add fish with significant impacts on the bioload, as Mollies, pleco would; otos less but they need to be in a trio so that takes up space (in terms of water quality). And the SAE is out, it attains 6+ inches and at that size can get quite rowdy.
