What kind of filter do you have?

That sounds over crowded

Would you rehome any of the fish? If you were to rehome the fighter and 2 algae eaters and maybe a dwarf gourami ( depending on sex) then I think you could.

The 4 algae eaters makes this tank overstocked, IMO. Plus at some point you'll most likely have a problem with their aggression. They say one CAE needs a minimum of 30g so 4 in your sized tank, IMO, is too many. If you could rehome 3 or all of them that will help in the long run.
