Chain Tension

So I have just a standard link chain on my bike and I run a slammed rear end, and my chain is super loose. It isn't loose enough to remove a link, So I was wondering, could I put 1 half link on my chain like the Odyssey Bluebird chain? (Like this https://www.danscomp.com/products-PARTS/463011/Half_Link.html ) I don't need a super tight chain, just something a little tighter so that it is dialed and not all over the place when I'm riding.

They're in 0.5mm increments so one of those must work for you.

Or just move your wheel back enough to put more tension in your chain. A few mm isn't going to make a huge difference in how the bike feels, plus it will be easier to get your chain off when you need to take your wheel off
