a seriously common misconception is that algae is bad for tanks... its a balancing act between plants and algae competing for nutrients. Best way to prevent algae from over taking is establishing the plants and use a ton of co2 for the first 2 weeks.. This usually means no fish

be careful having it run 24/7.... if the lights are not on... no CO2 is being taken up by the plants.. which means its staying in the water and ur depriving fish of O2 and causing a ph swing downward

PS where in SD are you... im in PB
