I have a lot of algae should I buy another school of fish or an algae eater? I'm getting an algae sponge tomorrow either way. Also do tiger barbs work well with black skirts?

I have never kept tiger barbs. I keep saying that I will have them (Fill in the blank here), but every single time something catches my eye instead.

I found this link informative.
Small Barbs

I have seen Tigers and Black Skirts together twice, both times in 55 gallon tanks, and they seem to get along ok. However, my understanding is that with Tigers, a school size of something like 15 individuals should be kept to minimize fin nipping.
