I would run lights around 8-9 hours total. With a dawn time of an hour or 2. Then whites off with dusk for an hour or 2.
example. 10am blues, 12pm whites come on. then around 5pm whites off then 7pm all lights off. But you can tweak this to your liking. Or when you are home. Its just an example.

I run mine 10am blues on, 12pm whites on
6 pm whites off, 8pm blues off

Double posting is frowned upon

Also you copied and pasted your link... so the link is "dead"
