Omnivores that help control algea are benificial.Fish that sand sift are benificial.Any fish used for a reef tank only benifit from being compatible to algea control to soem visual effect.

usually tangs within the zebrasomas family, like yellows, purples, sailfin, so forth... they usually help with a lot of algea control... many of the reef safe wrasse will help a lot with eating parasites and unwanted worms...
