Personally, I don't like using algaecides at all. In my experience working at a pet store as well as a garden center in the water garden (pond) department, people who add algaecides have a harder time getting things to balance out naturally, which is ultimately what you're trying to do.

That said, they can be helpful at killing an initial outbreak, but care must be taken to remove the waste before it builds up and re-establishes.

Water changes and patience.
