I read the title to this thread and thought the government was spying on you and telling you what to do with your aquarium. Either that or you were on a reality show.

My thoughts completly,

I would agree with leaving the lights on longer. Is this really an attempt of your brother messing with you or actually trying to save your corals? I mean even if your lights are on, I don't see it doing much harm.

I hate it when people screw up my tanks. I had a party and someone dumped a whole bottle of Russian Vodka in my platy fry tank. All the platy's died.

I had someone pour beer in my cichlid tank at a party and the next day they were swimming around doing flips, twists, swimming upside-down, I did a PWC and ran a Magnum for a day and they all lived.

will i know 6 hours isn't that long but thats only for the metal halides...well anyways my brother is like way older then me he started the tank 2 years ago and he never turned the lights off and he had major algae so when gave up and took it down i started putting everything back after a couple of months, and the parents wouldn't care...but well i was away for this weekend just got back and my lights been on since friday when i left and im see some aglae but its not bad.

the reason i only have 6 hours of metal halide right now is because i just got over hair algae

ill have to lock it and just make room its getting out of hands.
