[APD] Plant Eating Algae Eaters

I have quite the infestation of hair algae all over my baby's tears in my 75 gallon tank that I set up this weekend. They were in pretty bad shape when I got them, but I didn't notice at the store. Now the algae is spreading to the other plants, and I think I'm in need of some Algae eating fish. My plant guru at my LFS swears by American Flag Fish, and trash talks the SAEs saying that they decimated one of his rotala sp (can't remember which) I however have heard a lot more instances of AFF eating plants than SAEs.

What are the opinions of people here about AFF and SAEs as far as algae eaters, and as potential plant eaters.
