It soucds as if its been up and cycled for a while, yes/ no? If this is the case phosphates may be in your water which algea thrive on.If your using tap water call your water dept and ask for an anaalysis, this could reveal negative findings and the root cause of your algea. Since your filter is so small it would be more fesable to use r/o water, in comparison to adding phosguard to filter media, store bought is convienient and relatively inexpensive.This info is considering your tank is cycled, not overcleaned and is not having bacterial blooms.Post and let us know what you figure out.
Oh, algeafix is simply a detergent; verified by poision control, it is good for taking your plants to the sink and cleaning with it. But it won't fix the root cause of your algea problem.
