VHO Bulb


I have 2 VHO bulb came with a tek light fixture that was previously used on a SW tank from the seller. The marking was gone, so I can't see what kelvin temp (Seller didn't remember either). It looks like pink color bulb after turning it on. Are these bulb useful for planted tank? I seemed to get some black hair algae growing on the leaves after using for a couple weeks. Will higher kelvin bulb cause algae problem anything more than 10000K?

Yes. Generally higher kelvin bulbs cause algae problems in freshwater tanks. 10000k or 6700k are what is usually recommended. Pink sounds like colormax..?
