the filter out is from the rear towards the front, and the 700 runs from the rear right corner across the tank to the left side.
I would adjust your flow to have one continuous loop. maybe move the powerhead lower or point it downward. The dwarf sag should be swaying too. Algae tend to develop/grow where low flow occurred.
