I've used American Flag Fish (Florida Flag Fish) against hair algae and saw 
almost immediate results as they went after the hair algae.  I keep them in 
a very mixed population of guppies, mollies and such in a well planted 
aquarium.  I never saw a problem.  I really can't help but feel that the 
hype of them being fin nippers was a little overblown.  I got my Flagfish 
from floridadriftwood.com

I've kept rosy barbs too, but have seen little personal evidence that they 
care for hair algae.  Just my opinion.
