[APD] Re: Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 7, Issue 18
There is also a rule of thumb about wattage of lights for a tank. Most tanks need anywhere from 1 watt/gal to 4 watts/gal. with longer tanks needing closer to 3 and taller tanks needing closer to 1. You may decrease the light to one light bulb. But less light means slower plant growth. Personally I would get the algea eating fish and leave the lights alone. Or you get a second tank and use the 10 gallon just for growing plants and only have one or two algea fish in the 10 gallon.

Subject: [APD] Green Algae
I have 10 gallon planted tank with 2 x 15W fluorescent light
one 6700K other 5500K. Gravel Seachem Flourite.
Hagen Natural CO2 System one bubble per 3 sec.
Fish are 5 cardinal tetras, 2 blue rams, 5 algae eaters, 2 Cory cats.
My plants grow very well but I have problem with small hair like 0.5 cm long green algae. I do change 15 % of water 2 times a week and add daily 5 drops of KENT Micronutrients.
Can anyone can help me how to stop this algae.
