Fuge up and running. Now what?

So I built a fuge for my 29 g biocube and it is up and running. Has 2 types of algae in it. My water parameters are perfect. Phosphates show less than .25 or whatever the lowest color is. So should I remove phosguard and let algae take over?

I'm not sure what that is. Check the link in my signature Pods, Algae and more. You might find it there
