Best lighting hours?

Im using a coralife ballast with a 10,000k 28 watt and a actinic 28 watt. Both are controlled by the same switch, so I can't choose between which bulb I want to use. I have a 60 gal tank with one coral so far. I am also running a high powered mercury vapor lamp along with a flourescent uvb bulb (left over lighting that I had from a previous chameleon enclosure) 24/7 on the sump/fuge area.

Question: what would be the best lighting sched to run on the DT using the coralife ballast? 12/12, 10/14, ect?

I run a 7.5 and a 9.5. You can do more with fewer bulbs, but try to mimic a more natural light cycle
