  2. Could I use a home Solaria/ tanning lamp to supplement lighting?

    Beginner Planted Aquarium
    I have a Philips Home Solaria HB 171-A, intended for facial tanning. Could I put it up against the glass of my tank for a couple of hours a day to provide extra lighting for my plants? It takes four Philips Cleo 15w bulbs. I figure the UV shouldn't harm the fish, because the glass will filter it...
