Some macro algae will go sexual. The last couple of tanks I started I used macro algaes right away. I have only had one go sexual and that was on an established tank. What type of algae are you planning on using?

i would wait to see if you get any ammonia spike. sometimes a strong ammonia spike can kill off the algae.
