Day / night cycle

What is a proper day / night cycle for my marine aquarium? Right now I have the light going on at 6pm, turning off at midnight (when I usually go to sleep), then having it dark till the sun comes up around 7am. Is that alright, or is there too much light?

You actually need to have your lights on more, somewhere in the ball park of 12 hours on, IMO

If it's a fish only tank...then it's fine. The ambient light from the room is plenty for the fish. I run my nocturnal predator tank with out any lights.

So it's alright if I have the light on longer then? Say, from 2pm to midnight?
