For the most part yes, but there will be a limited amount of 
oxidation/precipiation occuring. The extent to which that occurs will 
vary from tank to tank depending on a variety of factors (pH, redox, 
organic content, oxygen content, etc). However even iron that is 
precipitated will fall to the substrate where eventually it will be 
used by the plants and not by algae.
