At this point I'm more curious about the bound ammonia/algae interaction. If I wasn't using an RO filter, I would still have tap water with Prime, which still results in bound ammonia, with or without the filter. Does this have an effect on algae?

It seems like a way to test this would be to take a cleanly running, higher light, tank in an area with no chloramine, and then dose the tank with ammonia and Prime at the same time.
