I use nassarius snails, astrea snails, sand sifting star fish, peppermint shrimp and emerald crabs. The peppermint clean pretty well and also take Care of the aptasia. The emerald is awesome at taking care of the green hair algae. The snails are pretty common for eating algae. Just make sure you turn em over if they fall on their back.
