hmmm not sure. You could make a small cage out of egg crate and fasten in in the upper corner of the dt. I made a frag rack this way and used a small piece of fishing line and put it around one of the legs of my light fixture. This was only temporary but it held up perfectly fine.

Depending on the macro algae you could let it attach to some rocks and put it in the corner, things like feather caulerpa
Caulerpa
I had some grape caulerpa that messed up my tank when it went sexual, it comes in red or green. With either one you have to make sure it doesn't go past where you want it to be and be careful when pruning it back so it doesn't get away and start someplace else.
