Question Coralline algae Remove or no?

Hello everyone. So I have heard that when coralline algae begins to grow in your aqaurium that its a good thing. True or not? And should i scrape this algae off of any of the surfaces like the glass?

Coralline algea is a good thing. It can be removed from the glass with an aquarium scraper.

But would removing it be bad? Or it wouldn't make any difference?

Its more personal preference. I think its neat on the rocks, and even back wall, but I'm not a big fan when it blocks your view through the glass.

Yeah, definitely remove it from the front glass. Be careful how you scrape it if you have an acylic tank.
