Best way to clean algae

Don't use Clorox Bleach whatever you do! We killed almost all of our fish that way. We take the dead coral out once a month and just leave it outside in the sun for 2 weeks. Then we rinse it in our dishwasher. We have multiple sets of dead coral that we cycle. This has been quite successful with our fish only tank. We have a couple snails that do a good job eating excess algae but they are unable to keep up with the dead Coral.

Can you still see the algae on the rocks after sun drying them? I would think that it would not come completely off by just putting it in the sun.

The sun completely bleaches them.
