Krib Tank Algae

My krib tank has started growing green hair algae on the plants. The kribs pick at it but don't really put too much of a dent in it. Is there any fish that will eat this stuff?

Suggestions:
American Flag Fish (hard to find, rumored to be very good)
Rosey Barbs (Nibblers like the kribs, they will help but not eliminate the hair algae)
Ammano Shrimp (Really good munchers, but you'll need them in quantity)

Even though this is a krib tank, you will get more suggestions for fish that eat algae in the General Forum.
