Lighting & Algae

The fan in my PC lights is shot for the second time, so I put the original NO light fixture back on the tank. I have no coral. Tank is a FOWLR. I'm just wondering how the NO lights may affect algae growth.

I just spent Sunday scrubbing all the massive amounts of hair algae off of my live rock. Tank looks fantastic right now and I want to keep it that way as long as possible!

You'll see slower algae growth with less light over the tank.
