Then, I would try and eliminate the sunlight (possible put a background on the side). Algae is not bad for your fish, but it can take over your tank and be a pain to clean. Getting rid of it now is probably the best option.
yea. it is like a yellowish brown. that window is the only source of light in the room. I rarely even use the aquarium light because I think it'll throw the fish off their normal schedule. I mean, how would I feel if God just decided to raise the sun at 9 O' Clock at night? So, I don't want to cheat them from the little bit of light they get as it is. Thanks. I'll clean it out in a week or so. I just added like six fish to my tank. I dont want to throw off the embalance by cleaning it out, if that is even possible.
