    I have had some success so far with my 75 gallon using a Beamswork DA FSPEC, however the tank is still not fully established (fish safe and all, but it's only just over a month old). Plants are establishing well and showing good color, however. I also had the 36" version on my 40 breeder for a while, but I didn't know how to balance nutrients vs light vs co2 at the time, so I created an algae farm. I gave it to a friend of mine and he's been doing well with it in his dirted tank as well.

    Regarding more light = less algae, I have experienced this somewhat recently as well. I upgraded from a Finnex 24/7 Planted+ to the Fluval 3.0, blasting way more light on my plants...and wouldn't you know it, the increased growth curbed algae, plus the plants look way better.
