Algae eating fish?

Ok so I have couple of guppies (getting more before you say it lol) 10 neon tetras. 1 polka dot loach. And an African dwarf frog. I have 90 litre tank.
I am after an algae eater fish. I don't want snails or shrimps. What would be the best to have? I'm thinking of a brittlenose? Oh and also should there be on there own or more of them?

Also what would a good "centre piece" fish be. Again I'm thinking dwarf gourami. Those are better in pairs aren't they?

Thanks for you help guys/gals

That's about a 23 gallon tank and honestly I'd do about 3 oto's instead of a bnp. A dwarf or honey gourami would work. But that's about it.

Thanx for your reply

At the risk of sounding thick what are otos?

Look up Otocinclus. They are small.

They're fairly delicate so if the tank is not well established I wouldn't add them

Instead of adding more guppies, I'd get the loach a friend.
