Algae Question

Hey everyone, I just has a quick question. do you all let algae grow on the back wall of your tank, or do you clean it off, that seems like it would be a huge pain, anyways just wondering what you guys thought, thanks

I usually clean the algae off of the back of my tank when I do a water change. It's not a lot, so it's no different than cleaning off the rest of the tank.

Well in a non mature tank where the plants havent filled in I would do it but in a tank where there is a huge mass I guess would leave it. I clean my back since I have easy access to it.
