Personally, I've never done it, and have always kept algae by tweaking the system a bit.
Before you run out and buy stuff, have you tried shortening the length of time the lights are on?
Do you have any 'cleaners' in your tank? (I use snails.)
That's the thing... originally I thought I had a CO2 issue, then I was told it was low light, now I'm being told CO2. No matter how long the lights stay on I get algae either way tho lol. I'm probably getting some nerite snails. I just need to know for sure if it's the carbon or lighting route I need to go before I add my next plants.
