56 tall

Hi everyone.
My new 56 tall has been up for almost a week and everyone is happy and healthy. I used my old filters from my 36 along with the substrate and peices of wood.
In my tank I have
3 bule angel
2 cory
9 rummy nose
3 ram
I think the tank is pretty well stocked?
I would like to add a fish to help with the algae do you all have any suggestions? Im hoping for something that won't get too big.
Thankd

The angels won't eat the oto's and snail's? How big do bristlenose get?

albino bristlesnose plecos stay relatively small, 4-5" is my best guess. i have raise babies and after 3 years, they are about 4".

Just bear in mind, any fish added to this large tank will likely live out their lives in there as it will be nearly impossible to catch
