Best Candidates for Brush Algae Removal

Has anyone had good success finding a fish that will remove brush algae.  I
am having a problem with an Army Green colored brush algae in a 5 gallon
heavily planted tank.  The tank has 15 watts of incandescent light with a
high fish load.  It is my kids tank and I have a hard time reducing the fish
load.  I have no specific values but I am sure that NO3 and PO4 are
occasionally high due to the fish load.  I change 50% of the water weekly
with reconstitued R/O, and I cant seem to win the battle.  I am convinced
that I need the help of an algae eating fish.  I have tried a small molly
with no success, How about the Florida Flag Fish, will that help?
