hello, I was curious as to if anyone could please tell me how to prevent algae in my 55 gallon tank. It was just set up a couple days ago, upgraded from my 29 gallon. And I’ve never had algae growth in that tank, I also never used light. Just natural light from my living room. Now I have a fluval 36-48 eco bar light. I’m only going to run it for 8 hours a day though. I’ve just seen some of my friends 55 gallons and they have completely been covered in algae. Maybe there light was on 24/7 didn’t help. But how can I avoid it??? Ally suggestions? Precautions etc ? Also, here is a picture of my tank, yes it is front of a couple windows, but it does have blinds and weather plastic, so I’m hoping that does offer to much light? I will be getting curtains when I get paid to block it out and have just the lighting from the light bar.
