The maxium power of the light is 32W. So should I turn down to 8 hours only and also turn off the blue and red led? What is H202 by the way? I noticed that there is something that looks like a filter floss that trap on the driftwoods and my java moss. Is that BB algae? I also have a little bit of brown algae on the driftwood that trap bubbles.
