Has anyone used these sylvania wide spectrum bulbs on your tanks?...The K is 3400 on them. I was wondering if that is too low. I had 4 40W 6500K bulbs on my 55g, but the growth wasn't as strong as I wanted so I bought 2 of these bulbs, now there is algae starting on the glass, but I think it might be because my otto's have a bad case of ich along with my black neons, so they aren't in there anymore...how should I go about controlling the algae without otto's in there since they have been moved into quarintee, right now the tank is empty to make sure the ich dies off, but I will slowly be moving back in the tankmates in a few days?
