Is a little algae on my heater okay?
There is no algae in my tank since it is in my room and away from sunlight. I noticed a little bit of algae buildup on the very bottom of my heater, where the rubber tip is. That is the only algae in my tank. Is that alright to have, or should I take it out and clean it off?

Like Bordomb said, a bit of algae can be very beneficial to your tank. And if you have any plant-consuming fish, it will contribute to the vegetable portion of their diet. I keep platties, and my tank gets about 12 hours of indirect sunlight during the day. They get just enough algae. It's very entertaining to watch them nibble it off the heater, decor, etc.
