Hi. I have a 16 gallon tank with platies and amano shrimp. The water parameters are good (ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 5) and lighting is on a siesta schedule (6 hours on, 4 off, 4 on). Between the low nitrates and amanos, virtually all of my algae is gone, but I still get brown algae on the aquarium glass. It is very difficult to clean because the amanos chase the brush I use, so I have to be very careful not to hurt them. Question is what catfish would be good at eating the algae off the glass? I like corries but am not sure they would fit the bill. I know snails would work but my daughter just doesn't like them. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
