Lighting cycle questions...

I think I'm doing something wrong, seems like too much light...

Heres how I have the timers set up...
Actinic on at 7:00 A.M.
10000°K on at 8:00 A.M.
Actinic off at 7:00 P.M.
10000°K on at 8:30 P.M.

Should I have time timers for the Actinic turn off a hour or so after the 10000K come on or just leave them both on during the day...?
Thanks
Rich

P.S. Only thing in the tank is LS and LR with 5 Chromis

I run them all at the same time, My actinics are on for 12.5 hours and my halide is on 9 hours.

What would "happen" if I just ran 10000K for awhile?

J/K...

Nothing would happen, the tank would not be as bright, and in all likelyhood would be a more yellow looking color. Depending on how much your actinic play into the amount o light you have it may or may not effect the health of your tank inhabitants.
