Ed very nice tank. I was wondering how long do you run your lights (4X96watts CF) for?? Do you start them all at once or do you do a noon burst? Also what kinda bulbs do you have in there 6500k and 10k??

Thanks.

I have been thorugh the complete cycle with the lights on this tank.

First I turned them all on/off at the same time.
Then I switched to turning them on/off in sequence
Then tried a noon burst
Currently I turn two on at 1300 off at 2030 hours and the other two on at 1730 off at 2030 - these are staggard... lamp 1 &3 then 2 & 4.

I will probably try some other configuration in the future..... but I get very little algae with the current times.

I feel like you need a Fluval EDGE tank with your username.
