All I use is flood lights for my cheato and it grows like crazy I have my lights on for 12 hours and it's fine. It's what you think is best.

Wrong, caulerpa will go sexual if on a 12/on 12/off cycle. With caulerpa, you want the lights on 24 hrs a day.

I've had halimeda in my DT for years and of course it's on a light cycle. Never had probs with it. I've never had shaving brush, so don't know first-hand. But I haven't read issues with shaving brush being on a light cycle. Both are excellent macro algae though. They need good calcium levels and are intolerant to excessive nitrates and phosphates, so if they are doing well in your tank, it sounds like your water parameters are doing good.

I have chaeto in my sump. During the day, I have a 60 watt light on it and at night I have a bug light on it with a dimmer. It grows pretty good with no problems.
