    My 55 gallon tank is in an area where the sun hits part of it frequently. Although the water is sparkling clear, there's a cloudy film on the sides of the tank. I'm wondering if this is algae that I should clean off or if it's beneficial bacteria that SHOULDN'T be cleaned off. Anyone know? Thank you!

    Sounds like algae to me :)
