i need some help determining the lighting schedule i'm going to keep on my new tank. i have pc's for the tank.

for the time being, about 1 year, i'm in a very small studio. i'm also self employed and work from home. my schedule usually goes from waking at around 1130am and going to bed around 3-4 am.

how do i set up my lighting for my schedule? light filters in my place in the morning so it won't be totally dark. do i make an enclosure to put around the tank when it's time for the critters bed time?

I would do 10 to 12 hours of light a day. No need to make a enclosure, the inhabitants of the tank dont ned complete darknes.
I have my lightson from 2PM to 1AM.
Set the tanks lighting for your viewing pleasure, just make sure they get no less than 8 and no more than 12 hours of light per day.
