I have a common Pleco whose bioload is overcoming the system and I'm ending up with detectable levels of ammonia. What other Catfish with algae-eating capacities that is not to expensive could I get. I have tetras, Swordtails, Mollies, Platies, Pearl Gourami's, and the Sucker-mouth Catfish (Common Pleco)

Ive said this before... and id say it again. Bristlenose pleco, L number series, otos, whiptails (maybe? They can be a little difficult to keep)...

Edit. Get snails. Apple, Malaysian trumpet or nerite make great choices. They have a smaller bioload and do the same job.

L number series are a bunch of plecos (loricariid)... most havent been given proper scientific or common names yet and as a result, often have a L followed by a series of numbers.
Google loricariid.
Otos are otocinclus catfish or pleco...
