Dosing excel will not immediately kill algae, it can help other plants outcompete the algae for nutrients.
To use it to kill algae I believe you have to directly treat the affected area, by this I mean using a small pipette to shoot the excel directly at the algae.

Please somebody correct me if I am wrong here as I am not speaking from direct experience, this is what I have read from multiple sources when researching to combat algae myself.
