SAE doesn't have sucker type mouth, it is a nibbler. I recommend
a bristlenose pleco for this duty.

about my nitrate problem:
It turned out that I had a bad test kit, and my nitrate level was ok.
I tested my tap water, and the test showed nitrate level off scale in
that too. I checked local water supplier that there is maximum .25 ppm of
nitrogen compounds in my tap water. Thanks for all of you who answered 
my question.
