Can anyone identify this fish?

This fish was donated to me, I suspect it of devouring my Java Fern. Can anyone tell me what it is?

Looks like a Chinese Algae Eater to me. It's probably just cleaning your plants.

Looks like the one, thanks. According to that article, I'll have to keep an eye on its agression.

I'm taking it home today. There's such a huge amount of plants in the tank, along with a nitrate sponge, that it's never had more than one or two spots of algae. My tank at home is much smaller with a far less sophisticated filter system, so I tend to get more alage. Hopefully the CAE will appreciate it.
