Feeding/light schedule

As a retail manager my schedule changes all the time. So I know I need to get a timer for my lights so I can get the tank on a regular light schedule. Right now I'm trying to keep the lights on for only 8 hours at a time but it is at different times in the day. When I do get the timer should I keep them on an 8 on 16 off schedule? Also I would like to know if its okay to feed in the dark if I get home after the timer turns the lights off. What your tanks schedule is would be helpful too.

10 hours is fine. I run 1 hour actinics 8 hour full 1 hour actinics 14 hours dark. Feeding at night is also fine. A lot of corals will actually except food more readily at night but feeding really isn't needed.
