I second the opinions above (Chinese algae-eaters have been nothing but a pain for me too--a trash fish in every regard), but I'd like to offer some suggestions:

Florida Flagfish
Livebearers (mollies in particular)
Red-tailed and Rainbow sharks (at least when young, as in under the 4 inch mark)
Rosy barbs

All of these fish prefer their particular kinds of algae, so I'm not sure if they'd work on Anubias. I've always wanted to compile a list of algae and fish that like to eat each kind.
