The standard response will be 12hours on and 12 hours off. Dont confuse the actinic bulbs with 'moonlights'. Infact the LCD's you have in there would be whats classified as moonlights.

If your fixture is setup with the daylight bulbs and the actinic bulbs on different ballasts then set the actinics to come on 1 hour before and go off one hour after the actinics.
