No on both of those. What size tank are you trying to light? the only reason I mentioned a screw in lamp is because you did first...lol.

So have you used this bulb before? Would one be enough? Looks to be my best option

I have the 21 watt version of that light. It's the right spectrum for growing macro algae. You have to raise it really high to get a decent spread because it uses really focused lenses. Mines a par monster though at 20 inches I'm getting 150-200 par which seems kind of excessive.

No, I have not used this lamp before, but I'm sure it will work for you. Being 54 watts you could most likely mount it higher and hit the whole tank with just one.

Ill try going a little higher but i think thats the max height. The fug is 12x17x17 so its pretty deep and pretty big from back to front so the chaeto keeps moving out of the light
