light schedule

So i just bought a TEK elite 6 bulb t5 system. and it gives me 2 options to run 4 bulbs which are my 10,000k bulbs (not sure i bought the light used so the bulbs are already in) and then the other switch controls 2 actinic blue lights this was the schedule i was thinking

4 bulbs- come on at 1 pm and shut off at 7 pm
Actinics- come on at 12 pm shut off at 8 pm

you guys think this is to much or to little of lighting? i have pretty much only LPS in the tank except one tree coral
