Garra fish as algae eaters?

Does anyone have garra fish? I read that they are good algae eating fish does anyone agree? Or are there other fish out there that would be better?

I have no personal experiences with them but a trusted Vancouver LFS touts them as the 'best algae eaters' on their stock-lists.

I have six. They eat diatoms, like most other things. They don't seem very interested in the green or hair algae in their tank.

They are adorable fish though <3. I love them.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
