3 WPG Family Sedan

Is it possible to have 3 WPG without having it be a race car?

My husband has a 10G tank with 15W of light. Happily growing several 
different crypts, anubias, java fern (windelov), sunset hygro, ludwigia 
peruensis (or whatever it is). Purple cabomba is growing slowly with long 

He would like to add another 15W fixture to be able to grow some 
light-loving foreground plants - glosso, lileaopis, dwarf lobelia. But he is 
concerned that if he ups the lighting he will get into the algae wars and 
have a racecar - things grow fast but the crash is ugly.

The tank currently has only Flourish Excel added, and a 100% Flourite 
substrate. What will happen if he adds more light w/out changing the dosing?

-Rachel, worried that now he has ANOTHER hobby, but glad to be able to talk 
plants with him.
