So my 5 gallon tank has this algae on the back of the tank.. Is this a healthy algae? Is it okay to have it in my tank or should I use a sponge and scrub it off?

It won't hurt anything. A lot people don't like the way it looks so will wipe it off when they do a water change.

Totally agree. only i have mystery snails. :) for boring, slow moving creatures, they are fascinating to watch. :)
I don't like mystery snails because I don't like the eggs they lay on under the tank hood :/ my mystery snails always did that..

Could be diatoms. Otos, Amano shrimp, and some snails will eat it, but it should go away eventually. If it's diatoms.

I have a snail-breeding tank and it's my favorite one to sit in front of and watch.
I have Armani shrimp on the way! :) they are shipping to my house!
