You can, but the purpose of it I always thought was for nutrient export. Some do pinch a piece to feed to their tangs. You seem to be twixt and between a SW and a FW planted tank.

I'm going to do a SW planted tank.
I won't need so much other filtration if I have algae in the main aquarium.
because than the algae will already be taking out nitrates/ammonia in the
main tank.

Well I never realised that, my algae list are actually all plants.
Will they have a chance of getting eatin by the tang?

So I thought about it some more, and I don't have the money to pay for a
higher grade light for the plants. I'm just going to go back to a Predator
FOWLR aquarium.
So Now I have to come up with the right combonation or species.
I could do a cat banded, or nurse shark dedicated tank.
one of the main points is that it looks like a show tank, and I have to be
able to build it.
