will co2 alone cause algae?

If i have a low light tank with everything is running fine and no algae. With everything else remain the same, i add pressurized co2 measured at 30-40ppm to the tank. Will that cause algae?

or a more general question, will adding co2 with everything else remain the same cause algae?

It should have the opposite effect. If you don't have algae you shouldn't get it from adding co2.
