Lighting

Hi there. I'm not real certain what kind of light cycle we should set. We have a t5 light hood that has two modes. One day and one dimmer light.

Can someone give me an idea of what works?

It's a beginner reef tank with one coral and 4 fish.

Glad to offer more info. Thanks!!

Dimmer do you mean like blue? Dimmer one first like a half and hour or hour after brighter one then brighter one off then dimmer one off half hour or hour later. Usually 8 to 12 hours total if algae becomes a problem shorten the cycle. Corals need at least 6 hours for photosynsis if I'm not mistaken.whenever you want I run mine like 3- 11 so I can enjoy my critters later sometimes.
