*sigh* if only that algae bloom was a money tree...

I haven't really seen any "algae eaters" really do any serious harm to algae of any kind. Sure some species pick at it... but at the end of the day it grows too fast for their occasional browsing palate to do much harm.

Better off waging chemical/mechanical warfare against it with your undamaged hand. After all... working 2 handed in a fishtank and seeing what you are doing from the top of the water is far more difficult than working with 1 hand and looking through the side of the tank.

You might also try reducing the light to 7 hours a day, or removing some of the bulbs if the timer is already at 7 hours.
