You'll need to dechloronate any replacement water going into the tank. This will have to be done every time you carry out a water change, regardless of %. Other than that, no, there's nothing you need to add other than ammonia.
While cycling, you could - if you want - turn the temps up to 30*C, but this is entirely up to you. You could just leave it at the temps you'd be keeping it at once you get the fish.
As for the algae, leaving the tank lights out while the tank cycles should help. If not, you should just be able to just scrape it off.
