The lights timing seems to be different for each tank from what I've seen. Plants, fish, light intensity, all a matter of tweaking it to keep a healthy ecosystem and algae at bay. I run mine at 10 hours with an hour of moonlight leds before and after. I only run the moonlight because after trying it I found my glass catfish and upside down catfish appear to like it (that's when they are most active that I can see).

The tank looks nice, congrats! I would plan on some tall plants for the background though to add depth.
