Lighting cycles....

I was curious what everyone's lighting cycles are? I run my mh's for 5 hours a day starting and ending with my actinic t-5s and ending with moonlights over my 135. Start 9:30 am, end 9:30 pm, sometimes leave moonlights on depending on night and who's over.
What about everyone else??

My light is LED so a bit different. My Moon light run thru the night and it has its lunar cycle so it is kinda different every night. My true blue LEDS turn on from 10% to 100% from 10 am to about 3PM and stay 100% till about 7PM and start dim back down to 0% from 7PM to 11PM.

My white LED on from 10% to 100% from 11 aM to 3 PM and full on from 3 to 6 then dim back down to 0% till about 9pm

Yeah i would love to be able to run LEDs, especially with a full moonlight schedule. Hopefully soon my wife will give me the thumbs up for LEDs

I have my actinics turn on at 1 pm. My HO lights turn on at 2 pm. The HO turns off at 10 pm. The actinics turn off at 11 pm. Then I also have blue moonlight led's running 24/7.
