Which pump to choose

I think that some of my algae problems may be because of the poor water flow in my aquarium. Currently (no pun intended), I have a sunsun 302 canister filter on my 38 gallon tank. I have the intake in the back left corner and I have the spray bar along the width of the tank on the right side so it sprays the length of the tank. My question is what is your recommended way of increasing the flow. I have seen many people use the submerged pumps and that looks like the way i would like to go, however, I am not a huge fan of having large powerheads cluttering up the view of the tank. Any input would be valued.
