Yes...if enough light gets to the reactor I would assume that algae would start to grow. I have covered the clear reaction chamber to keep light ( after the novelty of watching it wore off!). The reactor can be taken apart for cleaning-the top has a gasket that keeps it sealed and there are thumb screws that can be removed to take the top off and the media can be removed for cleaning. Also the price of $119.00 on the site is incorrect..it is actually sold for $99.00 ( the HCO150E).
