So I have a bit of an algae problem in my two betta tanks, I need something to get rid of most of it, I'm not sure shrimps would live long with these betta's but I also don't want snails that reproduce like rabbits. So there is general algae and a lot of hair algae over the tank, thanks in advance for advice!

Cut back on lighting if your tank is receiving sunlight. Also wipe the algae in the glass off the best you can. Weekly water changes also help with this around 30% wcs weekly should help with the addition of new bacteria to fight off the old bacteria that is causing the spike in algae growth. Algae isn’t necessarily a bad thing however it doesn’t look very appealing! You can add an air bubble system to create more water movement in the tank so algae doesn’t form as quickly. Also there are water treatments such as tetra drops (follow instructions on bottle) also they have algae fizz tabs at Walmart for around 4$ that are made for 10 gal tanks per tab. I have used both and they do work for me and don’t affect my parameters much at all if any.
