How long should lunar lights be left on?

I have a aquatic life HO t5 lighting system. 2x54watts 10 000k and 2x54 watts blue light and 6 lunar led lights. What would be a good amount of lighting I should set the timer too?

75 gallon saltwater. No corals yet but coming soon!!!

I have 4-70w acitinics (blue) 2-250w MH (white) 8-LED moon lights

I run everything 2pm-2am: Acitinics 2-11pm / MH 4-9pm / Lunars 11pm-2am

Some people leave their lunars on 24/7 but thats mainly aesthetics...overall you want give or take 12on/12off
