My tank is against a wall that is near a window, however it doesn't get any direct sunlight. I have been suffering from green algae for the past few weeks and I am trying to figure out what I need to do to fix the problem. The tank has been operational since Mid-January.
I am hoping that I don't have to move the tank because that would be a major ordeal and I would almost rather take it down for good then try to move it.
Is it enough to be simply near a window and not in direct sunlight to have this be the problem? Assuming that the window is NOT the problem should the tank eventually stabilize and the problem go away or do I need to do something directly to the current setup to make the condition clear up?
