Diy algae scrubber

I have a nitrate problem in my tank. My tap water is quite high so i want to get it down. I have plants but they are not doing that much to be honest.
I was going to build a nitrate reactor but someone mentioned an algae scrubber.
I have a 110litre tank with a fluval 206 external filter.
The pictures show my show my setup.
As anyone got a good way to build an algae scrubber off of this tank. Ideally on the outside, but will go internal if i have too but didnt really want to lose room in my tank.
