Algea Issues...

well we have a 110 gal (i thnk thats what it is) with a bull head catfish, a peacock bass, mag, 2 jds and snails. we had 2 7-8in plecos in there but they were sucking on my other fish :/ so they found new homes... now the tank is fullof algea (duh) and the snails suck, any other ideas? I tried to put a bristlenose pleco in bc i read they are less likely to chew on fish and he got eaten within seconds of getting in the tank i need help haha

You're going to have to describe the algae first so we know what we're dealing with. Saying you have algae is like saying you have fish in a tank. Well, yea, but what kind?
