I don't run t5's but it would seem to look better if you ran the blues with the whites (of course start the blues 1 hour earlier and kill them 1 hour later than the whites). I run my white LED's 2 hours then my MH comes on for 8 hours and the whites turn off after 1 hour, then I run blue LED's until the white LED's come on again. I wanna see my tank if I wake up in the middle of the night for some reason.

I run my blues starting at 10 am and then the whites come on at 11am. The whites go off at 8 pm and the blues off at 9pm.

Hope that helps.

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