Re: Please help identfy algae eater #5
Your pic is very blurry so it's hard to be sure, but it looks like a Gold or Albino "Sucking Loach" http://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/
These are not good community fish and need a huge tank (5ft long) long term. Google Images on this link for comparison.

EDIT: The second and third pics are clearer and I think you have an Albino pleco. It could be a Bristlenose or a Common - how big is it now?

Re: Please help identfy algae eater #8
It's an albino plec of some sort - how big is it? How big is your tank?

EDIT: Crossed with Goldy, sorry
