Alright an update on my experience for the day. I went ahead and purchased a typhoon 3 ro di 150gpd ro di system from ABC Reefs. Tried all the faucets in the house and of course the last one I try finally works. But my dads handy man will be coming over sunday for some unrelated work and will be installing the correct plumbing needed in the basement for a permanent setup.

It's still going to benefit and correct the water after several water changes correct?

How about this. Between switching to 100% ro di I switched out 20 gallons as soon as I got the water made and mixed. And setting the timer on my lights to a set schedule. Also how about getting what they call a law mower blenny?
Will that do the trick? Also answer to previous questions.

Just because you have algae now doesn't mea you always will. I wouldn't get a blenny unless you've thoroughy researched them. They are pretty need from what I've heard it would be easier to just swap clean water and pick out the algae

Wait a second....what kind of algae is this? If it's hair algae, a Lawn Mower Blenny will not eat it.
Save the money and do weekly water changes. Cut back on feeding. Skip feeding the corals for a month or so.
