I had a big problem with algae in the beginning when I first set up my tank. We fixed it by buying a couple plecos. Look for. "Blue eye white pleco" or "bristlenose pleco". Both of them stay small so you can get a couple of them. I currently have 2 of the blue eyed white ones. They look albino but have blue eyes. They are amazing at cleaning up algae, especially that diatom algae. Othet plecos I find just sit there, but we are always in awe with these guys as they never seem to stop moving and eating.
