I dont think you should change your filter media,if its really dirty and clogged just rinse it in your old tank water during your pwc.(never just tap water it will kill your BB) From everything ive read here it only needs changed when its literally falling apart.

Clown plecos hardly touch Algae. I ran a breeding setup for a short time and they never even thought of eating the green :P they are panaques after all, so they eat off the wood. Rubberlip/bulldog plecos are the best by far, mine is territorial towards other plecs, so keep one of this species, he should get the job done
