Cat's don't generally eat algae; I suggest you remove the cause of your alage rather then getting some fish 'against algae growth'
Cory's for example need to be in groups of 8+ and either live on sand (ideal) or fine and non sharp edged gravel) and the appropriate tank size for a group of them.

How big is the tank? How long has it been set up? What're your water parameters (temperature, pH, hardness, etc.)?

If the aquarium has (cycled) and ammonia,nitrites ,,read zero each day ,all day, I might look at Ruby barbs not Rosy barbs. They would happily consume alage to a degree, and also appreciate mulm found on substrate in mature tanks. Mulm should not be confused with fish waste.
Kept a group of these with tiger barbs and they appeared to get along .
