a cleaning crew for algae isn't the best method as often if the problem is bad enough to be a nuisance most cleaning crews cannot keep up or you will need a tank FULL of them.

oooh you probably have blue green algae then :P nothing eats that anyway.

do you have very little flow in your tank? BGA is a bacteria that loves stagnant water:)

can you direct flow over the Bga? I knoe the filter for the 6.6 is orientated wierdly. lol
try dosing 1ml of H2O2 directly into the filter. (do this first thing when the lights come on)
increase to 2 mls the next day
3mls the third day...
until u get to 6 mls.
let me know how this goes >.<
if you see your cories react badly to this(this usually doesnt affect fish at all)
stop the treatment :)
