You have 5 Bulbs or 6? I have 3 blues and 3 whites. Instead of the 2 blues I switch them with 2 whites, I put the other 2 blues were the two whites where so I have it to come on with 3 blues plus 1 white and then after and hr the other 2 whites

AHHH.. makes sense.. you get 1 extra blue and 1 white for 2 hours more a day.

Right now, my bulbs are setup the way the manual recommended. I also hear the Giesemann bulbs blow away the Current ones (at least according to my LFS).

I too have heard that they are amazing bulbs and really put out a good amount of PAR and the correct colors.

I have the nova extreme pro...its 3 whites and 3 blues....but the way they turn on is:

Switch #1: 3 whites, 1 blue
Switch #2: 2 blues

I bought a dual timer tho so its all good right now. Now I run the blues from 2pm-3pm then all them together from 3pm-11pm and then just my blues again from 11pm-12am.

My next question is...since theres no lunar lights with the nova extreme pro, what type of lights can i use for this. I want something i can leave on all night when the rest of the lights are on...but still low enough in brightness for me to sleep (tank is in my bed room)..i also have no glass top or canopy as i heard its better...any ideas?

Get some sort of LED light. I got one from HomeDepot. Worked for me. Just run it on another timer. Do not get any Red lights as this is not good for your corals...
