First, CAE's are a big mistake in a planted tank! I once had two that killed a pair of Angelfish and a pair of D.Gourami(I ended up giving them to my friend to feed to his Piranha) They may eat algae when young, but as they grow older they begin to get a taste for the fish's mucus membrane(basically they're a parasite).

Secondly, I have a few favorites:
1. Otos/Oto sp. 'Zebra'
2. SAEs (Great for black beard algae)
3. Farlowella acus (Great for algae on glass)
4. Cherry Shrimp
