I used to get alot of algae growth on my powerheads and the cords, I believe it because its out of the main flow or it likes that plastic, I also get it on my other returns. your powerheads are also on the backwall and high which keeps them out of main light which algae also likes. I have recently added a refugium with macroalgae and it is completely gone except for a very fine on the returns (which is normal). All I can suggest is what I used to do is keep extra maxi's for water changes, cleaning, etc and instead of trying to remove and clean just replace with a clean one and use the covered one out of the tank for a couple of months while it completely dies off. if you try just to clean and replace one it will grow back really fast
