Lighting for corals

I have a deep blue professional 36" t5 lighting system and was wondering what I should set the timer on for a coral/fish tank. I have two clownfish yellow tang gobbie and a torch coral I just added an hour ago. If anyone can help me I'll really appreciate it. Thank you

Keep an eye on the torch. If it starts losing color, you are going to need to upgrade to something more powerful.

Oh. Why did i think you had 2 lamps? 4 lamps is a different story. You should be fine.
