Light feeds algae.

well yeah, but wouldnt it be good if i had maybe a coral in the spot where the light comes in? i saw a 2k gallon tank that had windows completely behind it so that sun light would come in. besides the algae which i imagine could be kept in check with a little extra work, is there any other reason i couldnt put a coral in the spot where the light comes in? i have a blind and a thick curtain that covers it anyways, but i just happened to notice the sunny spots when i opened those windows that are always closed.thanks

I'm not sure if the right spectrum would get through. I imagine it would, but I would wait for other's thoughts.

Freshwater tanks + bright light=lots of green algae......so that is why I was concerned about the saltwater. I will give it a whirl and see what happens...if it starts to get too bad then I will paint that end of the tank too with the black paint and that would block it out. One of those wont know until I try kinda things.....

Thanks for the responses...you guys are great
