Something To Get Rid of Algae

As I've mentioned in my other posts, I've had a major algae bloom in my 20L tank. I have a few hermits and two snails. The hermits have kept the algae bloom down on the rock but the rock still has a green covering. The glass and live sand are the worst.

So as soon as my cycle is over (its been running for 3 weeks now), I want to get something that likes to eat algae, be it on glass or the sand. Is there any fish or invert that likes to eat algae on the sand or glass? If so let me know what it is and we'll check my water params and see if it would live comfortably in my tank.

There is a brownish-green algae on the sand and a green algae growing on the walls. Is there anything that can get rid of this stuff?

I used 20 small hermit crabs to clean up my brown diatoms, lawnmower blennies clean up algae nicely as well
