Light time cycles for new CO2 setup
I've got a heavily planted 23l fluval edge, stocked with 5 endlers.
I have mr16 led bulbs and a 13w fluorescent bulb.
I was having severe algae problems on a light cycle of both lights on for 10 hours per day.
I've since reduced this to 5 hours a day, only running the LEDs. It kept the algae at bay whilst I did some co2 research.
I've now got a co2 setup running. And just wanted to check what people would recommend in terms of lighting cycles.
Shall I just go straight back to 10 hours per day? Or do I need to gradually increase the lighting?
I'm scared about choking the fish if its too gradual, but at the same time is doubling the light intensity and duration all at once a good idea?
Prior to the CO2 setup, my led lights came on 5-10 at night.
Now my CO2 is in, I've turned the fluorescent bulb on also, and added two hours in the morning 9-11.
Advice on how to proceed would be appreciated.
