I've noticed a bit of algae has been growing in my 10 gallon nursery tank, and I am looking for ways to get rid of it.
Here is the stocking list, just in case that helps.
I'm also trying to do something like a jungle theme, so if it could kind of fit that theme it would be nice!

Nerite snails. A bit of algae isn't harmful though, you don't have to get any live animals(you can manually remove it or find the cause).

Algae is actually good for your aquarium, it's mainly the aesthetics that people don't like, personally I keep my front glass clean but the sides have algae growing. When it comes to algae problems it's best to deal with the problem causing the algae rather than just get something to "eat it". However, in your case, nerite snails or amano shrimp would work.
