 i  might  opt  for  both  ottocinclus  and  siamese  algae  eater  and  never  go  for  chinese  golden  algae  eater.
 ottocinclus  is  by  itself  an  xcellent  algae  eater  but  the  only  thing  it  leaves  is  brush  algae  hence  i  suggest  siamese  also......but  GAE  will  bee   too  lazy  and  aggressive  once  it  grow  big

 never  keep  Gold  Algae  Eater  unless  u  have  a  really  huge  tank  full  of  aggressive  fish.  it  not  only  NOT  eats  algae  after  it  reaches  a  certain  size,  it  eats  slime  coatins  of  fish  even  larger  than  itself,  forget  small  ones.
