If you have a HOB filter you might change the inside of it and add some GFO to reduce your algae growth. Mine looked ugly as sin at the end of the cycle but it's all gone now. I believe, against the majority opinion, that the more junk that grows, the more bb will be established. I don't have confidence in bacteria in a bottle. If you lock a tree up without carbon dioxide it will die. So I believe the bacteria will croak on the shelf before it makes it to your tank. Just my opinion.

Just caught a question you asked and I didn't answer it... I would run the HOB filter, but me personally, I would not run the skimmer during the cycle. But yes, you need to run your HOB to keep the water clean and I would also make sure you have plenty of water circulation during your cycle.
