Hair algea eater?

Is there a fish I could put in my 46g bow that eats hair algea? I don't want a sea hare. Like a actual fish?

My lawn mower wouldn't eat the long hair. I ended up using 3 black Molly's it was gone in a week! Most important thing I did was to stop over feeding. I only feed three times a week now. I removed the mollies and haven't had any since.

My friend picked up a bi color blenny it did a amazing job. Make sure it's a herbivore he paid 10 bucks.

The crabs are good and sometimes do a great job, Unfortunately for me after that they turned and started eating my zoas so I took them out.

I witnessed my emerald catch my goby and tear its mouth

I just had the same algae problem. I got a beautiful Tomini tang and he's doing a great job eating it off my rocks!
