Red spotted blenny dead - need new algae muncher


My red spotted blenny was killed by a mantis shrimp unfortunately. Probably my most favourite fish in the tank.

Unfortunately in the month since he died a great deal of brown algae has made a comeback all over the rock and filtration pipes.

I could find another red spotted blenny but I'm finding it hard to locate another. Other than a yellow tang, can anyone suggest other good and relatively common algae eaters?

I'm in Sydney so it'd have to be common for Sydney.
