Can someone help me with advice. I currently have 35 gallon Solana with Taotronics 120 W dimmable blues and whites.
My current schedule is whites come on first from 7am-3pm and blues 7am-4:30pm. I have whites on about bare minimum I wouldnt even say 10% and blues up to about 50%-60%(that's probably the problem)
I've notice colors on my zoo's and acan have faded a little in color over the past 3 days.
That seems a bit light on the light (no pun intended). Also, you can go up to 12 hours for blues and 6-8 or 9 for whites should be good. If algae starts to occur, cut back on the total time for lights, white reduced first. Probably a bit more white light as well.
