I agree on the otos - as long as they are kept fed (with vegetables anchored down by a fork) after the algae is gone (they are good at that) - I have amanos in my tank and they don't touch algae.
I would also look at how long you keep your lights on - you can also remove algae from the tank walls yourself by scraping it off.
I find a little algae adds character to my tank so I'm not running to remove all of it.
