I did. Leaving on all the time is not the issue in your statement that the light only produces "low" light. That's just untrue.

Reading comprehension is definitely not your forte. Original post states "fairly low light".

On this tank I had every light imaginable and this one has by far the lowest par readings (yes I own one of those too). There is a thread here somewhere about my par readings even though it does not correctly read the REDS it still came out fairly low. This tank had the $500 dollar ATI lights, Aquaillumination LEDs and a few other expensive fixtures....nothing beats this finnex with the way it grows my "low" light plants (crypts and anubias). I own 6 of these lights.

If you are getting algae with this light then you obviously do not know what you're doing. And I still stand by my statement that these do not produce a ton of par.

Calling bs on this and have to agree with jrill, Im pretty experienced at keeping tanks/plants and Id have to say they produce med to high med light in my opinion. Even with CO2 and proper dosing I still get some algae unless I put a screen over the light. Not going to get in an argument over this but just putting in my 2 cent and also pointing out there was no need to get nasty to someone on the forum.

Not sure what is BS. My tank literally does not get algae and I do not use ferts or co2 (tank is filled with shrimp). And if you look the tank is filled with low light plants such as crypts and anubias. I have a journal on it you might want to check out so you see that it wasn't just put together last week. You can get algae with the cheap t8 lights that come with Petco hoods that put out 10par...just sayin.
