I have a 15 gallon (50L) tank.
The tank is a Juwel Rekord
http://www.juwel-aquarium.de/en/rekord.htm

I was wondering what intensity this bulb will fall into

1x T5HO 24watt LIFEGLO 6700K

Would this be regarding as high medium or low lighting?
The reason why i ask is because ive got this bulb already DIY fitted into the hood. I am growing HC but am getting algae problems. Ive installed CO2 yesterday but i am worried about my CRS

Thanks in advance guys

The tank you linked to is a 63L tank, and it is about 16 inches high. One T5HO bulb, with a very good reflector sitting right at the top of the tank would give you high light. If the reflector isn't very good you might get medium light.
