its meant to go oposite so it doesn't swing. at night when the lights are shut off the PH drops a bit, with the fuge lights on you don't get that big of a PH swing

yeha you don't even need a 40 watt, this is all you need, but if you already bought the bulb then keep it. anythign with a 6500k or 4300k will be more then fine when growing micro algaes

as for the mud, i've never used it and head that peopel have had pieces of brick in the mud. so i wouldn't go with it
