Small Amount Of Green Algae


I've noticed some green algae growing on one of my rocks. Should I not worry about this? The tank really doesn't get a whole lot of light because I keep the blinds closed on the windows in the same room. I am using city water but I don't have the $ to buy water from the store.

I might be willing to move to a RO/DI system later. If I did what would you recommend? The cheaper the better for me... but it does need to work.

The algae is maybe 2 inches in diameter in one spot.
