Lighting Help

Ok, a while back I posted a topic bc I was having trouble with my new light (Orbit 72" PC). Now that I've gotten it squared away, what would be a good light cycle for each light? I've got FO, and LS. 10 or so crabs with a Bali Starfish for inverts and 7 fish (see signature, minus the gramma).

What woould be a good time for the Atinics, Flourencents and Lunar lights?

Currently I have the Atinics coming on at 1pm, then the Flourecents start at 3pm. The Flourecents shut off at 10pm and the Atinics shut off at Midnight. The lunar lights stay on all the time (until I can get another timer).

This sounds like a long time to have lights on, is it? Any suggestions?

Sounds like a good schedule to me.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
