I turn on my acentic for an hour then add the 10,000k pc for 10hrs and back to the acintic alone for the next hour. I run the led moonlights through through night.

Do you want any corals or light-dependant inverts? If not, you can scale down your lighting schedule. This can help keep algea at bay. Most people have actinics come on and turn off an hou before and after the daylihgts. Moonlights you can leave on 24/7
