Coralline eaters

Hello, I need a reef safe creature that eats coralline algae (if such a creature exists) but I don't know of any. Do any reef safe critters eat it?
Thanks!

My Astraea snails did quite a number on my coralline. I paid .79 for each.

It might be worth noting that there are a few that will esp. the two named but the will eat it off your rock first before tackling the glass. I`m assuming you are talking about getting it off your glass????
