I know. He sells fish too. Makes me question. But Hopefully he just missed a 13 gallon tank size.

Do not get a 6 line wrasse. They are way too aggressively for a 13 gallon tank plus they don't eat algae. Also they jump so cover is a must

As mentioned a wrasse will do nothing for algae control, but are excellent for pest control. So if you want one look at something from the Wetmorella family. Possum wrasses for that size tank.

An algae blenny is also an option for your 13 gallon. Pretty peaceful as long as you don't add another blenny and they'll do a decent job picking at algae

Bro sally light foot crabs get like 6 inches big and can take down fish

They are great algae eaters but I wouldn't add one to my tank
