I turn on my blues first for an hour before my whites come on. I figure it's better than a blast of bright light to the fish. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I do that also. It's kind of like the sun is rising.

+1... If you have seperate plugs for the lights might as well put them to use
