Does anyone that has seahorses also have a slime algae problem because of the lower flow in the tank? Any suggestions of how to control it?

Since you can't blast flow at it, you have to cure it by looking at what's feeding it - nitrates and phosphates. A sump with a reactor can help, more water changes, and reducing waste. Certain macro algae can out compete for nutrients. Algae needs food, so do your best to eliminate nitrates and phosphate.
