I got llights. Now what?

I got the nova extreme 4X54 watt t5. 2 of the bulbs are Actinic 460 nm: 2x54Watt and the other 2 are 10 daylight bulbs. what are those bulbs for? Do I turn on all for all day? Are the actinic bulbs for night time? what do I need a timer for. Someone help.

I have my actinics come on first and an hour later the daylights come on. Then in the evening the daylights go out first and then an hour later the actinics go out. Actinics on 9A-9P and 50/50`s 10A-8P

Thanks. So actinics are slike a sunset and sunrise. I thought they were night moon lights because the instructions said these lights were on 24 hours. I agree with you because your the second person to say so.
