CSM+B light sensitivity?

I couldn't find a clear answer to this, but is CSM+B sensitive to light?

I want to create a liquid solution stored outside the tank cabinet and hooked up to my dosing pump.

Use a container that does no allow light into it, or tape over it / paint it. In my experience mold/fungus will grow more where there is light.

Add some acid to the mix to help prevent it. I've tried Excel / Glut but it doesn't work that well.
