I second the recommendations of otos, bn plecos and true SAEs, I have/had all of these in various tanks and are all quite effective, although otos are more limited in the types of algae they like. Also my tank that only has cherry shrimp in it as algae eaters never really seems to get algae on the glass... not sure if it is because of the cherry shrimp or not though.

Default Algea eating fish for a 20 gallon community tank

Right now my algae is just on my leaves and is starting to get stringy, if you know what I mean.

What should I get that isn't to picky about the type of algae but also is a good community fish?
