Amano Shrimp, but critters should never be used as an algae fix. Find out what's wrong with your water parameters, it's most likely due to an abundance of light / nutrients in the tank.

Ken, it's the proteins from the substrate. ADA aquasoil and fluval stratum have both released some kind of oily, protein-y film, and water changes help a bunch. If it's bugging you though, you can...

Yeah seriously, how'd you end up with leeches? This is the first time I've ever heard of leeches in someone's aquarium.

For the fluval shrimp granules, what I do is fill the dish with water, add the granules, wait for them to sink, and then slowly lower the dish into the tank. 75% of the time it works 100% of the time.

There's really no need for 5-15 dollar glass scrapers. If it's glass, then go with razor blades. These seem to work a lot better for me than the cards do and they're cheap as heck. Just be careful...

Are there other ways to raise up the lights besides hanging them? I've got a tight space for my 12 and hanging's not really an option. I've heard the tank's so shallow that even a single t5NO bulb...

I'd be wary of a lot of the vacation feeders that supposedly last 5+ days. They've got a bad habit of fouling the water fairly fast, and I've lost a few fish to these feeders.
