The lights came with the timer preset from the factory and I never changed it. I think the 10K MHs are on for 8 hours. The blue T5s stay on longer. Maybe 12 hours. And then led moon lights. Does this sound right or like too much?

well the t5s should stay on for 10 hours but an over lap of 2 hours each isn't bad

Could high phosphates cause the color fade?

Maybe cut back on the metal halides and let them run 6 hours and the t5s 10 hours it may help.
