I like to use a clean paper towel folded into fourths for cleaning glass. Sometimes reducing the lighting period can help with algae. Would maybe try reducing the lighting period to eight hours from ten hours.
If lighting is on for over ten hours,,then algae would be expected for plant's only can use so much light per day. Leaving lights on longer than ten hours, won't increase plant growth but will increase algae growth.
