I have a 32 gallon BioCube that I have modified the lid and put a Maxspect 420R lighting system on. It has the adjustable lighting timer system. The tank is at a business that is open from 8-5...what is the best times to have the lights on/lights off for the tank. It has the white and blue LEDs.


Also what is everyones opinion on dosing the tank with vodka?

Whats in the tank? if fish they don't need light and you can run them whenever you want..
If corals 6-12 hours is fine.. no "best" time to have them on/off just 8-5 would be fine so the business can enjoy them..

And I'd suggest vinegar vs vodka for carbon dosing. Vodka seems to cause cyano issues more than vinegar.. and vinegar is cheap..
But carbon dosing usually works really well assuming you have a skimmer
