With the 16" I did not have any problems with algae. Get a timer and set it for eight hours.

Wish you lived in or near TN as I am giving away a bunch of equipment...including 16" Stingrays.
Thank you! Darn, I wish I lived near you! Another quick question: how do I rig it so it goes under the lid of the tank? I'm not sure it will fit under and I don't want Red jumping out of the water if I don't have a lid on it. I guess I could switch to a glass top maybe and just clip on so it shines over the glass top?
