Haven't tried it but I'd be pretty surprised if you ended up with algae in
the tank.  Since you are talking about a fishless tank I'd go for it.  I'm
interested in hearing your results because this would be a good way to dose
a fishless nanotank such as the one I have in my office where I can't simply
and easily transfer some water from another tank.
