I'm trying to get a 55 gallon, the best piece of furniture for it to be on us in front of a window. There's blinds on the window that I neve open. Would I be setting myself up for algae city?

Thanks

Only if your getting direct sunlight in the aquarium, will you might have algae problems.

I've done it successfully. Sounds like you don't open the blinds so no worries.

If your tank is glass...Paint the back of your tank (side next to the window).
You can get a paint sample at Lowe's in the color of your choice and roll it on with a sponge roller.
When you want to change colors, just scrape it off with a single edge and redo it in another color.
CAUTION: Do not apply paint to acrylic tanks unless you are prepared to live with it forever.

Or you could just get a background for the aquarium if you'd like to avoid the whole painting hassle.

I paint the back as well. It just looks better than a taped on background. I used acrylic and a small roller from a arts and craft store. It’s cheap and works just fine. It scrapes off easy too.
