I agree with tyyrlym.....I used to clean mine every two weeks because algae was growing on them. I didn't know how this was happenening because my tank is in our basement out of sunlight. I soon came to realize that while i was at work my g/f left the light on allllll day. I leave for work at 5am and get home around 6pm....I have mine on a timer to turn the light on from 6pm till about midnight or so.( do the math, thats about 19-20 hours of lighting a day) so i didn't think twice when I'd get downstairs around 6:30 or so and the light was on.....you should try and locate the source of your problem. Since then, I have cleaned mine twice in about 4 or 5 months! good luck!
