What do you think?

I was visiting my grandpa in southeastern Michigan and saw a long-time landscape and pond business that now had sw and fw fish. I thought I would check the place out and was shocked to see that the tanks were in a greenhouse. Everything in the tanks was covered with algae. He was selling lr that was covered with it (and way higher prices than I have here).

Is that as shocking as I thought? Is it good (or even ok) for the fish? He stated that he had to scrape the tank fronts (and sides?) for algae at least twice a day. None of the fish looked sick and he had corals and sharks.

I'm just glad I have a better selection of lfs here.

Excess algae isn't going to harm the fish. It's just going to look really ugly.
If you wake up breathing CONGRATULATIONS!!! You get another chance to do it right.
