I usually turn on the light at 7ish, 6:45-7:15, but it is light out when I get up at 6. The tank is by a window so I think that is a signifigant amount of light. Ii turn it off at 8-8:30, when it gets dark. even If I never used it, they would still have plenty of light, is this too much light time?

Not too much, not too little either. Usually you would want to stay around 8 hours of light as algae will thrive of the light is on longer, I personally have my lights on 12 hours a day, but that is purely because I have all planted tanks, and want to ensure there growth

You can possibly use the curtains. If you arent having algae problems though, then I wouldn't mess with it
