    Before recommending anything I'd like to know what your current set-up is:
    - Tank volume and dimensions
    - The maturity of the set-up. How long has the tank been running?
    - Water hardness and pH (roughly)
    - Other tank inhabitants
    - Is it planted?
    - What is the substrate (e.g. gravel/sand/soil)?
    - What is your water change and maintenance routine?
    - What filter do you have on the tank?
    - And do you want the fish to just solve an algae problem or are you looking for a new addition to your community which will add interest? If the former, we can probably best advise on how small changes can combat problem algae without having to resort to getting a fish to do it for you (the increase in bioload can often be counter productive anyway).
    - What is your lighting routine (e.g. how many hours per day)?

    I hope you do a fishless cycle to prepare the tank before getting fish.

    +1 to both above posts, and you should answer fireflys question and say what is going to be instead of what is.

    Bad. Cories are sensitive.

    I personally believe in tackle algae at the root and not by having a fish take care of it.

    Bad just use quick start and measure paremeters with a api master test kit, and post paremeters throught process.
