With the fluorescent (also a fixture that is too high of light to run my tank as low-light), the split photoperiod did wonders at controlling algae, and I would love to continue to do that with the Sat+... if I can. Another question, would the split photoperiod reduce the life of the LED?
I have the single ramp timer and there's only 1 on/off cycle. It's still a great product IMO. But you shouldn't have to worry about splitting your light cycles to reduce algae because the Sat+ is dimmable. You can customize your output to your desire and save it in the memory (there's 4 memory slots).
