That means it has lunar LEDs (lights) that are on 24x7. As for lighting, I run all mine at the same time. 8-10 hours of light is good. Some will run the actinic before/after the white light come on/off.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I'd do mine with actinic on at 1pm, then the daylight on ALSO at 2.

Daylight off at 10, then actinic off at 11.
