I wouldn't trust it, those algae products do more harm than good. They have a lot of chemicals in them that can kill or poison your fish.

Depending on what algae it is you can get rid of it with black-outs, scrubbing it off, Excel spot treatments or, if you are willing to, nerite snails or Amano shrimp.

If you have live plants it will also kill them too. Better to use preventive methods like algae eating fish and regular water changes and keep good maintenance on filtration will keep algae away or under control.
