It will indeed go away in time. Nutrient is fueling the algaes and is part and parcel of a new tank. As long as a pure water source is used and foods fed are not high in PO4, you shouldn't have a long term issue.

Cheers
Steve

Water changes will definately reduce nutrients/impurities that cause algae and other issues. The dechlor tap water will not cause any real harm though, just possibley some aggravation.
