The Cool White LED only goes on if the other LUNAR LEDS are on, so that is my confusion.

Blues ONLY from 5am to 10am
Cool Whites ONLY from 10am to 11pm
Ok bare with me....

Blues at 9am
All your whites at 11am and of at 8pm
Blues off at 9pm
Lunars rest of the time you can also **** the lunars down at say 3-4am you'll be seeping (maybe lol) and it will give the tank some total darkness.

Ok I am understanding more now.

Just need to know if LED LUNARS are on 24/7 like others say. I have the LED Cool White, but it will only go on when the 2 LED LUNARS ARE ON. That is what is confusing me.

No lunars go on when all other lights are off. The cool white you don't want on with the the lunars. So it's confusing me but what it sounds like is they are tied in together.

Options.

Return the cool white and run:

Daylight
Actinic
Lunar

When lunars are on that's all you want on. Make sense? So Tahoe cool whites being on defeat the purpose of "moonlights" and will make it almost daylight 24/7

Let me ask you this. Can you turn off the cool whites BUT still have lunars on? Of so then just power everything up and at night just the lunars will remain on.

Yes in the thread I discuss what each button does, I have 4 on this canopy.

Button 1 = ONE LUNAR LED ONLY
Button 2 = BOTH LUNAR LEDS and COOL WHITE LED (only will work if button 1 is on, if Button 1 is off, and I press Button 2 on, nothing goes on.
Button 3 = ACTINIC BLUE FLUORESCENT
Button 4 = DAYLIGHT WHITE

Ok so a timer wouldn't work then because once the cool whites go off your lunars will also. And 1 needs to be on for 2 to work. Kinda a weird setup of you wanted timers for all lights. Only thing is axe the cool whites. Then problem solved for now anyway... See I have the AI SOL BLUE LED fixture.

It goes through a whole daytime/nighttime cycle. It slowly ramps up and then from noon it will slowly ramp down.

Give the company a call maybe they have some suggestions that were missing

Yeah will figure this out today, I guess I was wrong in interpreting the lighting. Only the LUNAR (1) LED goes on with button one. ALL LEDS go on with Button TWO. I wonder if they are in the wrong slots.

They could very well be in the wrong slots.
