"One horror that I can imagine is a tank infected with both

Probably black beard algae wouldn't have much of a chance in that
tank, but, neither would the plants."
I had just this scenario occur in one tank. And it was a horror, until
I introduced Jordanella floridae. They held the stuff at bay until I
could get the plants growing well again, and then they finished it off
and it hasn't come back. (Another flag fish plug.) BTW, there was
no black beard algae.
