pH fluctuation causes algae?

I am using a pH controler and I have fluctuations in pH of about 0.06 pH,do you think this unsteady dosage can cause any problems with algae?

No. I run some tanks 24/7 with CO2 where the pH fluctuates 0.1 - 0.2 and have no algae issues.

You should be fine. Make sure to remember to check the calibration of your probe periodically.
