I'm don't know that much about lighting, just that anything over 2 wpg is supposed to give you bad algae problems, unless you plan on using CO2. Maybe someone else can give advice.

No atinic will not get you algae. Well then, I guess it would be okay (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

Actinic won't contribute to algae like normal flourescent bulbs.

2.5 actually a little less for CF is when you start gettin algae problems with plants without plenty of CO2.. then ferts.. and antic does add to the equasion but only a very little.. If your close to the 2.5 wpg of correct spectrum lighting, dont add more light with atinic unless you have CO2.. and dont add more antinic when your close to 1wpg in a fish only tank.. does this help? I know Im a bit late in the responce.. 8)

hmm i have some java fern, a little riccia, dwarf nymphaea apogoton and an amazon sword. unless the price on this one goes up ill probally go with the 48 watt? but the only problem with that is it comes with like 1 10k and 1 actinic. and that'll put me at less than 1 wpg

im thinking of adding some dwarf hairgrass, some hydrocoytle versillata and some other plants.
