Algae Eater

Due to the fact i have marbled crayfish -who's favorite treat just happens to be snails- i cant have snails in my guppy tank... causing the walls to become coated with algae. can anyone tell me a species of algea eater that will clean the walls, not eat my baby crayfish, and not be eaten by the adult crayfish?

Algae has a source, it'd be better to find that before buying any animal to eat it IMO

Algae eaters are no replacement for consistently cleaned water. If you have a lot of algae, it could be caused by high nitrates which are solved only by water changes. Just scrub the algae off of the walls yourself and make sure you are keeping up with proper maintenance.
