I've had good luck with an algae crew of SAE's, snails, some type of
livebearer (platies usually), otos and Rosy Barbs. When I first had the
algae similar to what you describe I dropped in some Rosy Barbs. After a
few days it went away. My best guess is that the fish ate it rather than it
just died out (no kidding!).
Get bigger barbs as I had some baby ones that didn't do anything to it in a
smaller tank. Over 1" (they grow to over 2").
P.S. Drop an email if you get a chance (ferrell_chris at hotmail_com)!
