As Wolf said, phosphate alone doesn't cause algae and it very well could be a sign of the newness of the tank.

Limiting a vital nutrient for plants is counter productive. Healthy plants can out-compete algae. Also, even if this somehow did work against your diatoms, you'll just get GSA instead.

Grow plants and stop fighting algae.
