Ottocinclus are perfect.

Note: this is NOT a Chinese Algae Eater.

What size tank do you have? Otos are very sensitive to water quality, so I wouldn't house one in less than 10 gallons. Bristlenose plecos are also good, but I'd say you need at least 15 gallons for them to be happy.

Snails or shrimp are your best bet in small tanks.

I have a 10 gallon tank. I tried snails and they eat the slim off his fins and back. He died last week. They took over the tank. 100s. I bought me another Betta today. I tried a Pleco and he didn't keep the tank clean.
