IMO, it is a mistake to depend on chemicals, especially seeing as you do not have a problem yet. There is no need for chemicals when doing water changes with RO water will fix algae issues, IF they occur. That and not overfeeding etc. Chemicals, at best, are a quick fix, not a long time fix. Get in the good habits to begin with.
