i would change them around the same time...not too far apart from the others simply so you can remember how old they are and when to change them next time. i mean, changing one here and one there will get confusing.

How many hours per day?

I went from whites on for 10 hours to only 6 hours then upped it to 8 hours over the course of a few weeks. All my corals did fine for the transisition too. I have now ended up with blues on at 10am then whites on at 12 noon. Whites off at 8pm and blues go off at 10 pm. I haven't tried the 2 hour blue photo phase before and so far my corals are doing the same as when I had the whites on for 10 hours.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
