I’ve got a h80 and a grow light from Home Depot over my fuge.  Every three Months I pull out a 5 gallon bucket worth of chaeto.   
 

ive heard amazing things about the fuge lights that are hundreds of dollars, but the cheapos from HD seem to work just fine.

Honestly, pick any led grow light on amazon and your good to go. 

Turn it up till the chaeto starts getting white patches, then turn it down several notches. 

They are like $40.

 

Side bar.. if your nitrates are .40 why on earth are you lowering them? My nitrates currently between 20-30.

Cause I got an inbalance between nitrates and phosphates causing some uglies
