My guppies definitely put a dent in algae growth. Especially brush type growth they can tear off. But they don't do much for broad leaved plants or cleaning the glass. I've got a pair of Swordtails in my 55g to help the SAE's work on the brush algae.
In my experience, they aren't voracious enough of an algae eater to be of much use as such. They'll prefer flake food every time.
