Hello, I have a question about my T5NO light. i purchased it at homedepot says its a grow light.

here are the specs
Brand: Lithonia Lighting
MPN (Part No.): GRW 2 14 CSW CO M4
UPC: 784231246948
Order Code: 206C17

Color Temperature: 6500 Kelvin
Bulb Type: Fluorescent

I want to know if placing this light on top of my 10gal will give me med lighting or leave it suspended 17 inches from my ada soil. I am using pressurized co2, i dose iron and k2so4 atm.

Thank you.

Thanks!! but i am trying to avoid algae and promote more growth started dosing Ei today. you think if I suspend the lights closer to the tank it will give me algae?

Yeah i think so....start ei dosing and keep everything the same. the only nutrient if u use i would worry about is nh4/ammonia/urea to cause more algae
