Plecos. Throw some of Hikari's algae wafers in there as well as some raw, peeled zucchini, and they'll take to that instead of the anubias leaves.

I think some plecos are better with plants than others. Not sure what kind of you have - I know bushynose plecos are good with them and will take the algae off the leaves but won't eat the plants themselves.

I have had two types of BNs. Type 1 likes algae. Type 2 likes broad plant leaves. Personally, I like Type 1 a little better.
