All around best algae eater. Plain and simple, i've read all around this forum and im still not getting the answers i need. Anything you can possibly say about any algae eater out there from experience put it out here to help people like me in the search for some efficient algae eaters.

It depends on what kind of algae you are trying to eliminate. Shrimp, Plecos, Ottos are all good candidates for eliminating certain types of algae.

Of course, that being said, the best solution is to find out what is causing the algae in the first place, and then fix it so that the algae does not come back.

There is no all around best algae eater. No animal exists that will eat every type of algae. There are already numerous threads here about this subject and none are conclusive nor will they ever be.

Agree with Darkblade... your best solution is to cure the cause of the algae so it does not come back. Learning to grow healthy plants should be your focus, healthy plants are not prone to algae problems.
