how often do you have to clean the glass so the screen gets max light?

I've never cleaned the plexiglass on mine. It doesn't fog up or get dirty.

Is it treated or highly polished so there is nothing for the algae to adhere to?
algae has no problem growing on the walls of my acrylic tank...LOL

No clue, just doesn't. All it is is an outdoor pamphlet holder.

Dary's tank!

The algae doesn't seem to grow on the inside acrylic, but it does accumulate dried salt crystals. I rinse the inside walls every few days to keep the light path clean. I have the bigger four light commercial version, but I doubt that makes any difference.

Dary's tank!

Nothing too much to report these days ,.. All the recent plumbing of the reactors and turf scrubber has remained leak less and performing admirably ,.. The scrubber has been up and running for about 2 weeks now and although there's a showing of algae on its screen it's a long ways from a harvestable crop at its present rate of growth.,no hurry on my part , when it's ready its ready .
I did manage to secure a couple more dewalt power tools for the Arsenal so any kind of modifications ,plumbing or general cabinet work will be well represented by them when the time comes.
Tank wise ,everything is stable since the monti die off when I went to Hawaii at the end of September.

Sadly, I have been too bad for Santa. I tend to buy what I want if I can afford it, so I suspect many pairs of socks are in my future.

I don't think BRS socks will keep your feet very warm...though I did just get 3 socks for my tank. The bad part is that isn't the socks and underwear that'll be waiting for me under the Xmas tree.
