Will dig more options for you.:)
Siamese Algae Eater
These fish are excellent at consuming black brush algae which are often hard to remove. Growing to almost 5 inches, they are peaceful but have a tendency to bicker on the members of their own species.
These fish seem long-lived. At least in my experience.
(Come to think of it. I'm about to celebrate my SAE's five years birthday )
Oh, in case you don't know, try to feed the BNs with veggies. If not, they'll turn into the live plants for food. Lettuce, cucumber, zucchini are a few ones I can mention.:)
