Regular ones would be common plecos. These do not do a good job consuming algae rather they prefer other food options. You are looking for bristlenose plecos, Sturisoma panamense, L010a or clown plecos (Panaque maccus).

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Your water conditions are far from ideal for healthy shell growth.
