What would be a good fert mix for culturing algae?

I bought some Nano algae on ebay and setup a 10 gallon aquarium. Originally I planned to buy some F2 from FAF but they would not accept paypal and the CC I used (which was not mine) kept running out of cash by the time FAF would run the card. I have some EI ferts bought from aquariumfertilizer so I thought I would try that and see how it goes.

Been forever since I used EI fertz and I lost my small measuring spoons so I winged it using a 1/8tsb spoon and used...

1/4tsb potassium nitrate
1/8tsb mono potassium phosphate
1/8tsb Plantex CSM+B

hoping it works! Any suggestions? This is in a 10 gallon tank but with about 6 gallons of water.
