does the juwel marine blue and marine white bulbs make alage grow quicker ive had the bulbs in for about 2 weeks and the alage is growing like mad on the glass i did a water change on saturday and gave the alage a good scrub off the glass and tonite i can see it starting to come threw again would it be the new marnie bulbs or would there be another reason before i changed the bulbs id the standard white bulbs in and if any alage started to grow a good rub with a sponge had it gone and it would of stayed away for months

Algae feeds on nitrates phosphates and lighting. I suspect the stronger lighting just highlighted an existing problem. Check nitrates and phosphates level.
