Shrimp and Otos will munch down on the hair algae. If your tank is big enough(36" or more) try adding an SAE, they're great for most types of algae.

Is the cherry shrimp as good as amanos to eat algae?
In my experience the Cherry is almost as good, but just not quite. I don't think you'd be disappointed with either one of them though. :)

I just acquired 3 "ruldolph" shrimp from my local pet store. What bothers me as how off they were on the type of shrimp they were selling. They were listed as "ruldolph" shrimp and being sold for $2.99 apiece. Upon closer look they are cherry shrimp. I got 3 for $6.00 and it turns out I have 2 females and 1 male. Can't wait for the babies!
