Help with the cleanup crew

what can I get that would eat up GSA? It's a relativly small tank at 20 gallons and I have no way to get rid of my Gold Barbs so there isnt much room as far as space for whatever I get.

I don't know of any fish that can handle cleaning GSA. Types of Algae
http://www.aquahobby.com/articles/e_algae_eaters.php

I found to get it off the glass easily use a credit card to scrape it off, I don't know how well it would work on an acrylic tank but does work pretty good on a glass tank.

One complaint people have about nerite snails is they lay eggs on glass and the eggs are rather hard to get off.

MAN I wish tehre was a way to ge trid of it. withing 2 weeks its EVERYWHRE what am I doing wrong... I have some live plants (non aquatic thanks a lot petco) that will be removed once I get some better plants from a reputable source (already found the guy ) and 65 watts (on about 8 hours a day) over 20 gallons (which is probably why it grows so fast.

I dont wntn to add chemicals I just want a way to get rid of it
