which plec?

i have some brown algae in my tank so I wanted to get a pleco to take care of it. i have been told that a rubberlip would do the trick, but then i was told that i should get a bristlenose if i wanted it to get gone and stay gone. so anyways, my question is, which would do the job better? i need to choose one of these two cuz i dont want a 2 foot fish in my tank later. i want them to stay small. thanks!

A brislenose is the better worker of the 2, but the best working pleco I have come across is the L77 Rusty 8" max... If you are looking at really sml then ottocinclus would be a great option

Get a Bristlenose, they only get to about 6 to 7 in inches fully grown and love algae!
