Coraline algae on back glass?

Hey everyone what is your preference on having Coraline Algae on your glass?

Personally I like the look of having the Coraline algae on the back panel and the overflow boxes. But not on the side panels or the front panel. Just my preference.

How long does it take for it to start growing.

Mine started growing in about a month and a half, but it took about 6 months for new patches to reach dime size. Also, some critters slow it down, or even just eat it.

On my 36, I have it growing on all sides but the front. It would have progressed further, but while my mother was house sitting for me she scrapped it all off trying to help. I'm just now starting to get the purple coraline to start growing, as it has all been the green prior. It isn't all covered currently.

Took my tank 4- 6 months before it started showing up in purple about a year or more before the whole back of the tank was completely covered. I too like it I think it gives it a great established look to it. I've seen other tanks years old that the people scrape the back and the tank looks completely new.. just my opinion.

I'm with you on this. IMO the only tanks that should be Coraline algae free from glass should be cube tanks.
