I run my actinics 12hrs and dual days 8hrs. Dual Actinics come on at 8AM and go off at 8pm. Dual days run from 10A-6P. My LED moons light the other 12hrs at night. Been doing it that way for 3yrs and have always had good luck.

Get a coralife dual timer and the whole works will run itself!
Good luck

hey pitt!
you wouldn't by chance have any experience with clams under those lights would you?

I think you need Very Powerful T5 like 4 bulbs or Metal Halide for clams.. I tried a Maxima under my T5, and he lasted about 4-5 weeks...
be careful...

As well as very high placement under T5 could help...
