Refugium question

If you have a refugium, do you keep your lights on all the time, or do you alternate with your display tank lighting schedule? Or, do you have another approach all together?

Do you have any fluctuation with pH or anything?

This is why I do it this way to keep my PH stable when DT goes off ph drop so ref light comes on and ph stays stable.
