Depends on tank maturity and each tank is different I started with a 8 hour actinics and whites and then moons. After lots of adjustments my tank fish corals nem and coraline love actinics on at 11 am till 2 am whites from 1 pm till 3pm and lunars 1am till11am

I have my actinics come on at noon, both actinics whites at 1pm whites go off at 11pm and actinics go off at midnight. led "moonlights" which consist of 8 leds 2, 2, 2, and 2 going along the back of the tank on 24/7. They are so dim, its basically dark lol.
