Will a blue led strip increase algae?

Hey all I have a blue led bubble stip it the bottom of my tank... If I leave it on at night will it promote algae? Here's a pix it's not too bright.
Thanks for the help
Dan

I don't believe so. The watts are low so the light is very minimal. I run mine and haven't noticed any major algae outbreaks. If you think your getting algae because of it, you can then it off or shorten its time.
