Crap spectrum on all those LEDs mentioned. Stick with your T5 and just run all four bulbs. Get a wider spectrum of bulbs instead of just 4 cool whites and calling it a day.

You can always play it safe and spot dose 1ml/gallon every 24 hours. The algae will go away it will just take a little bit longer. That way you have 0 deaths and nothing to worry about.
