Yesterday I bought 2 new lights for my 44 gallon tank. I bought the cheaper for right now. They are just the Super Actinic R and an Actinic White. Can't wait til tax season am having a custom hood made with the halides and so forth. The proper lighting I would need for a reef tank. It's gonna cost about 600.00 but the setup is awesome. Anyways the lady at the store was telling me that one of these lights I have should be on for 8 hours per day and the other on for 4 and I should alternate. The one thats on for 8 start first, then in 4 hours turn it off turn the other one on for 4 then turn the first one on again for 4 hours. One of these lights gives off a blue purple color and I'm not sure which is which. So could anyone help me determine which lights need to be on when?
