I would start out with 10 hours daily, no adjustment period needed. I'm thinking that the WPG was made for regular florescents, not power compact. There are many factors in not getting algae like a balance in lighting, C02 & ferts, so the statement your boss made is not entirely true. If you don't have C02 already I hope you are planning on running C02 with 55 watts over a 15G tank.
