I have a 45g tank with 3 PC
tubes, one is (I think) a regular actinics, that has a soft purple tone, one is a regular white, and the other one is bright blue (they came with the setup).
Does anyone use something like this? Can someone advise me for a lighting schedule?
At first I was doing something like:
Purple from 08:00 AM to 11:00 PM
White from 09:30 AM to 09:30 PM
Blue from 12:00 AM to 03
The shopkeeper thinks I should switch the white and blue schedules.
The thing is the blue one doesn't look so cool as the white one (combined with the actinics), and it looks like it makes algae grow faster.
