From what I've read so far the more light the more co2 and fertilizer And plants required to reduce algae (If I'm remembering correctly). I feel like I'm drinking from a water hose while learning all I need to know.
Yeah there is a learning curve. I've been at it over four years and am still learning and trying to figure everything out.
Think of light like the gas pedal. The harder you push, the faster everything goes, and it can expose weaknesses. It just turbo charges everything, good and bad.
So getting ferts/CO2/maintenance correct becomes more important. Each one deserves your full attention.
High light high tech planted tanks are not for everyone. It takes a good amount of thought and effort. Like any hobby, you need to enjoy the process. And part of that process is finding a good balance in your particular tank, which is not as easy as it sounds.
I always recommend going through the journal section to find tanks with similar goals to your own. It will give you a good idea of what it takes to get there, and how those folks manage their tank. Even then, expect some stumbles along the way. We all have them.
Good luck and looking forward to seeing how things develop for you.
