macroalgae

What are the minimum lighting requirements for growing macroalgae? I plan on keeping a ten gallon fuge used specifically for growing macroalgae and for culturing pods. Suggestions?

I had good success with NO on my 20 fuge. I ran 2 20 watt NO units with old bulbs and it grew well. Try it and see it wont hurt anything if it does not grow well. If it starts to die off get another light..
