    There is a type of tropical fish that sucks the alga off the side of the tank....don't know what it is called...looks like a small cat fish...sort of ugly. My son't always had one or two in their fish tank and didn't have the film. Their aquarium was not a large one, just the normal size. Check at a pet store and maybe there are some drops you can add to the water.

    Hi John, Pat is right and it is called an algae eater. all the places that sell fish usually carry them.

    A pet store can advise you on what kimd of fish to buy that willl go all over your aquarium and clean it up. They will also clean the stones on the bottom.
