adding another PH?

I have 2 MaxiJet 900s in my 30g long, they do fine for surface agitation but I am getting some cyano and hair algae in spots where the flow is too low. I am thinking of adding another, smaller PH along the back of the tank to move the water around back there, and suggs for a good, small PH? A smaller MJ?

I like the Hydors for a wide gentle flow. MJs are great for a strong direct flow.

Marineland also makes a "MiniJet" that is pretty small and has adjustable flow.
