Let it grow or clean it up?

Do you clean the back wall of your tank? Or let the algae grow? And why?

Get some turbo snails. They will keep the back pretty clean. I don't clean it because I'm trying to get coraline to grow on it.

I'm the same way. I don't worry with it since u can't really see it anyways. I only worry with the front and sides since it obstructs the view.

So are your rocks up against the back or do you still have space?

I will scrub the back of my tank very rarely...maybe bi monthly. It is painted black so you don't see much. The growth there helps to feed my lawnmower. But once it starts to wave in the breeze I take it off with an old credit card.
