Algae Eater Suggestion

Hello all,

I have a 10 gallon live planted tank with two 6500k bulbs. I have two Amano shrimp that keep the algae in check on the plants but they never seem to touch any of the algae growing on the glass. It keeps my tank from looking clean. I need some sort of algae eater that will keep my glass clean. I know there are snails as well as fish but I'm kind of new to fish keeping and would like an experienced opinion. The only fish in the tank is my halfmoon betta. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Cories don't eat algae.

If you're talking about the rather crusty green stuff, as far as I know Nerite snails are known to eat it.
