Lighting

So this is for all the aquarium lighting experts. Right now I'm running aqueon LEDs and I have these older lights that came with my tank when I got it and I need to know what kind of bulbs it has will attctch pics. Also want to know will I have a better chance growing green algae for my mbuna to graze with the fluorescent bulbs then with the LEDs. Right now I've been getting brown and a little green seems like the LEDs are not doing it.

Those look like T-8s; 18", ~17 watts. It should be printed on the tube.
Sorry...Can't help with the green algae Q
