Hair algae solution

My friend told me that a molly would clean up green hair algae. I also heard a lettuce nudibranch would clean it up as well, any ideas?

All those getting fish and inverts are only a bandaid solution. You need to find the reason why and stop the fuel source. Here is a good start.
