Need more light time for algea and more light time for coral

Hey, i was wondering, i have 3 corals in my tank. Shrooms, a leather, and a tree branch thing. I dont have that much algea, but it grows when i keep the light on for more then 10 hours. Do my corals need to have light for a longer period of time? i mean i usually turn light on in mornin to feed, then turn it off to go to schoo, then when i get home, i turn it on untill like 7-8 o clock. anything i can do?

0 ammonia
8.2 PH
nitrites and nitrites 0

I don't know enough about corals yet to answer, but i have been told to keep the lights on for 10 to 12 hours a day. Try putting your lights on a timer .
