I don't keep my lights on for more than 12 hours. I would aim for 10 and the blue's be on for 8.

in a fowlr you don't really need the blues , as for your light regimen that's up to you could do 8 hrs or even 12 everyone has there own preference if your noticing more algae blooms shorten your lighting times ,
