Mine seem omnivorous... But yes they eat algae. Not all types though.

They feed primarily on the soft algae, biofilm and diatoms like otos do.

Dojo loaches. I have never had an issue with any other types of loach, but I cannot keep dojos alive long term. Also, platies. I buy them, I like them, they drop dead. I buy them, I like them, they drop dead with no warning at all. Though, I believe the biggest issue with platies is actually finding decently bred ones and not mass produced junk.
