I'm going from memory, but you would have 8 set points.

12am: 0%
3am: 0%
6am: 0%
9am: 0%
12pm: 60%
3pm: 60%
6pm: 5%
9pm: 0%

So you would ramp up from 9am-12pm. 60% light 12-3pm. Ramp down from 60% to 5% 3-6pm. Ramp down from 5% to 0% 6-9pm to end the day.

The ramp down from 6-9pm would be very dim as a moon light. Yes this can cause algae but it will help extend your viewing time. Of course this is just using the times on the remote to keep it easy.

Hopefully that makes sense haha.

Here are 2 shots of the tank I have running this light. I run this tank with the light in 24/7 mode, but the tank has been established for over a year before I felt comfortable giving it that much light. That guppy grass in the upper left eats a lot of the light and so does the floating moss ball on the right. Also have a bunch of red root floaters and duckweed in there.
