I dont specifcally remember my ghost shrimp eating any algae. If they do it must be super small amounts. Or maybe I just didnt have the type they like to eat in my tank.

Negatory. When I had ghost shrimp they did NOTHING for algae. They will however pick left-over food out of the substrate and plants. I'm not a shrimp expert, I'm sure there are plenty of experts on this board, but I remember reading something that shrimp do not get "rid" of algae. They almost farm and maintain it to keep a constant food supply, instead of eradicating it.
