Hi, do you know what sort of algae? I get black-beard algae (BBA) on equipment and use hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) squirted on (under or above water) to keep in check.

I usually get a bucket and add 2 gallons of RO warm water and 1 gallon of distilled white vinegar you can add all you wavemakers and return pumps and turn them on in there for a few hours after that use a toothbrush and any kind of algae even tough coraline falls right off leaves everything looking new just make sure you let them run in fresh water a couple hours before adding them to your tank
