Thanks MSG, but i haven't had good luck with ottos, and cories and ottos both have different water parameters then i have. I also don't have sand, and gravel would damage the cories barbels. I wanted a smaller bioload then a fish but also makes a great algae cleaner, that all. I was aiming towards ghost shrimp or snails, because snails have a protective shell, and have a purpose :)

I have had a mystery snail in my old tank and i did water changes fine with it, never ever sucked them up

Yah, i don't have the right ph and hardness for them, and i don't plan on adding any extra chemicals to the tank. Ottos max out at about 2 inches, and cories 4, 1-2 inches for pygmies. They also have to have other food besides algae, and i want a strictly algae eating invert. Plus, cories need sand otherwise their barbels can get severely damaged
