Algae trouble

Hi, I have a spot of yellow algae growing in an area of my tank. I dont know how to deal with this thing. Could it be the aquarium light causing this problem? Theres no sunlight coming in on the tank either......
Somebody please help me!!!! Thanks.....

How long do you leave the lights on? Also how much are you feeding your fish? Both of those can cause algae to grow.

Thatís definitely your problem.

Remove as much algae as you can manually then start to feed once a day and cut back light to 8 hrs. If you work or go to school and want to view more when youíre home itís fine to split the hours between early morning have it dark while youíre away and then on again for a few hours at night.
