I have my PC lights come on at 11:30 am and off at 11:30 pm,
MH come on 12 noon and off at 11:00pm.
All seem very happy with this combination, I also have a 15 gallon Refugium on reverse cycle to maintain pH and control nusiance algae among other things.
I would say 10 - 12 hours will be enough lighting time.

75 gal. Reef & 30 gal. Anemone Tanks.

I get paid for what I may have to do, Not for what I do!
