Lighting Scheme after algae problem.....

I just rid my tank of nasty green hair algae and want to know how many hours per day I should be running my lights to be sufficient for coralline algae growth but not enough for crazy bad algae blooms. Anyone? Anyone?


Thanks

Bill

I used a phosphate absorber called phos-X and siphened out as much as I could. Also, I stopped using my light for about 3 weeks and added a dozen cortez crabs, by no means an easy thing to get rid of....
