Personal preference would be LED's. Despite the fact that LED's are much stronger they will most likely cause more algae. What are your phosephates at?

The siesta is a nap or rest period. It interrupts the growth cycle of algae I guess, according to my aqua plant book. I know it helped mine! I turn it off during the middle of the day, though I will probably get a timer hooked up eventually! lol
