Brown Algae

My 60 gallon tank is about three months old.
So I heard the brown Algae is common. and beleive me it's running rampit!
Ammonia and nitrites are running 0. I'm going to remove some of the plastic plants and decorations and clean them up a little.
I'm considering a couple algae eaters. I must admit i'm fond of the Bristle nose plecos. The ones that stay smaller. But hear they are very messy with pooping. What would you all recommend?
Right now I have
2 Golden Gouramis.
4 buenos Aires
3 white skirts
1 Rainbow shark.
