Lighting schedule

I have a pretty new 120 gallon with two clown fish and two coral plugs that I picked up yesterday

I'm confused on how I should run my lighting. I have 3 led panels that have both blue and white leds

How long should I run my blue? How long my white? and should I run them both on together for a period of time?

Any tips or advice would be appreciated

You want to try to mimic the natural day out at the reefs where we collect these corals. If you want a morning/evening transition, I would start running the blue in the morning for about an hour, then run both, say for another 8 hours, then the whites go back off, and the blues stay on for the last hour, for a total of 10.
