Your right and your wrong. 6500k is not natural sunlight underwater. Yes algae is the result kf nutrients however with 6500k lighting it doesnt matter if your test kits read 0 you will grow algae. 6500k promotes algae growth hence why it is used to grow macro algaes in refugiums.
Color has lots to due with algae growth. Its the reason halide, t5, and PC
bulbs need replaced on an annual basis. Because old bulbs change in color spectrum.
