It could be not only the quantity of the light, but the quality of the light.

I have the same problem in my 135 gallon tank. Nasty brown algae covering the rocks and sides of the tanks. I cut the light back from about 7 hours a day to 4. It slowed it down but hasn't stopped.

I think I need to replace the bulbs. However, the lights are double bulb fixtures. Four 36" bulbs is a significant chunk of cash, so I keep putting it off. Perhaps I should invest in some algae-eating fish instead. :fish:
