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.

Both the 360 and 160 are brand new so "outdated" doesn't apply.

OP the 360 will be considerably stronger than the 150 but it's dimmable so you can tone it down. 360 allows for upgrade later on if...

Move the warm whites closer to the cluster. That will fix the spotlighting.

Lime was never meant to replace cyan. They make the tank look brighter without affecting color temp.

PAR isn't the end all be all. One can also go high PUR instead of high PAR and be able to grow even better looking plants.
