I had a Algae report book and it lists Otocinclus as good algae control for Brown Algae (Diatoms), Fuzz Algae. Otocinclus Cats, or Dwarf Sucking catfish Otocinclus affinis are good algae eaters through they mainly deal with algae in its beginning stages when it is very short. They eat mainly diatoms and green dust algae according to my book.
You should always give them algae waffers or algae tabs also as they can not survive on the tank algae alone and some people starve them and they die because of not enough to eat because they think that they can survive on the tank algae alone. Their tummies should be round and not sucken in when you look at them. Just keep that in mind.
