You should not 'treat' algae by getting a fish. Fix the underlying issue - overfeeding, direct sunlight, too much light, water with excess nutrients, etc. Never buy a fish just to fix a problem. What happens when the algae disappears? Get rid of the fish?

Well I actually love the plecos not just for algie control. And since this is one of the few non aggressive fish that can go with my Oscar and green terror I will actually have a few of them. I feed them just as I would my beloved oscars. I was just wanting some advice on what other kinds of plecs are out there considering the one I have is a common and after I already got him I found out the extreme size they can get.
