I don't usually recommend a creature to clean up algae but a seahare will clean your tank pretty quick. the only thing is you have to feed him alage after he eats all of yours. Bob my seahare ate through all my algae in days and I currently dont have any so I give hime algae sheets on clip towards the sandbed so he can munch on them. he has gotten from about 2 inches to maybe 6-7 inches in just a few short months. Thast your sw pleco right there. Just gotta be careful with some as they can ink and then your tank gets nasty and you have to pwc pwc pwc. Mine hasnt inked once and he';s been moved and handled alot. I have a bali sea hare.
