Usa current led run time

I plan on switching from MH to the led marine light from usa current. I currently run my lighting from
10 am till 630pm. Is this time frame good for the tank. Any recommendations on a run time for the new led lighting. I currently have a fowlr, pair of clowns, blue tang, Christmas wrasse, mushroom colony, duncan colony, and 2 Kenya trees.

Yes that light period is fine. You can grow softies and lower light lps under it. Which you already have

As bribo said, it'll keep softies and low light LPS. Those will be just fine under such a light.

I'm very new to coral so I'm really not sure about all the different kinds. I did look on live aquaria and it said moderate light. Then again what is considered low med and high.were do the current USA lights rank. Thanks for the help

Would you consider the USA lighting moderate lighting? Or is it considered low.

I'd consider it low lighting in terms of coral requirements.
