If this is the case you need a higher-wattage light, not a longer photoperiod. Many planted tank sites recommend 8 hours max and anything else is an invitation for algae. For bettas I give a max of 6 hours of light since they like their 'dark-time'. In fact, Lou bites his tail whenever the light is on so I keep it off as much as possible.

Thanks, but my tank is doing just fine with everything.... I didn't need any advice.
