Lighting question

I am wondering if there are any cons to splitting up the 10 hours of lighting. ie I would like my main lights on for say 2 hours in the morning hours and then off during the day when no one is home and back on for the remaining say 8 hours into the evening for a total of 10 hours of main light. Any issues to the fish or plants?
