Amazon.com and petsmart.com and petco.com are great. Amazon has products from the latter also.
That fish place that pet place is a good seller/store.
As for the algae, your problem likely lies in your lighting. Incandescant bulbs, the yellow y ones, when left on a long time with out natural plants, can spur growth. Take that kind of bulb out if you have it and replace with flouresant, and dont leave on too long! Make sure you aren't allowing excess food in the tank, either. It feeds the algae too!
Also, if you do use it, dont over fertilize.
