I highly recommend you run optics, you want to reduce the amount of light hitting the glass as much as possible. I didn't on my fixture and oh my goodness the algae that grows on the glass is ridiculous, if I don't scrape the glass, it only takes 2 days before I can't even see into the tank anymore.

I'm redoing my fixture right now, adding 60degree optics and dimmable drivers. Wish I did this from the start!
