Update: I bought some red sea aiptasia x it seemed to work really good and fast so far. The aiptasia instantly ate some then coughed and spit it out lol then I blasted them! It was pretty fun actually!

Well that's seemingly quick here are my water parameters :
pH: 8.0
Ammonia: 0.50ppm
Nitrite: 2.0ppm was 5.0ppm
Nitrate: looks to be 10ppm

Also the tank is at the beginning of its diatom algae bloom!

No reason to run one. They kill free floating algae, bacteria and parasites.
