Seriously. And yeah, they like to close for periods and scare you into thinking something is wrong. They fight off algae easy by re-opening, when they decide to.

I've done this in the past and had it open next lights on. May have helped may have been coincidence who really knows.

I don't agree with this either, I purposely glued it to my overflow as I believe it will look better and more natural covered in gsp then just a big black box in the center of the back wall. To each there own though I suppose.
I have a frag of GSP from my smaller tank that wouldn't grow. It has now been in my upgraded tank for 1 month and still not open.
