recommend good (coldwater-ish) algae cleaner


Is there any recommendations for an algae cleaner (both vertebrate and inv.) for a 2.5 gallon planted fishtank with 3 white cloud mountain minnow? The temp. of the system as of right now during the winter is hovering around 65-70 Fahrenheit. Oh and the algae to be cleaned is the usually green and brown algae that are sticking to my glass, plants, and rocks.

Thanks

Any neocaridina or caridina shrimp species are fine at those temps. They wouldn't be much help on the glass though. But for a tank that small I would just manually clean it.

I have successfully kept RCS in containers as small as .5 gallons, maybe even less. They don't do well with algae in small groups but a big group will do the trick.
