Well to be honest most people tend to try to stay away from streams. But, probalby if you go deep into valleys you may find somethings but, its kinda of an pain in the butt places...

the ones I got recently are the first once I saw in my live and the store did not even know them. Now they trouble me with some small spots, either a weird form of ich or perhaps oodinum, which has a similar nature, but it's white so far.

I've had success with bristlenose plecos, one of my tanks has a female that's likely 6 yrs. old. She's so efficient that I have to supplement her diet with the typical zucchini, spinach which of course creates a mess.

Although, she has to compete with the yoyo loaches/tiger barbs that all seem to go nuts over any green vegetable. At 4.5" long she's certainly a poop factory. I'm contemplating trading her in if I can find a siamese algae eater, just to reduce the excrement load.
