So I have a diy led fixture over my 11.4g Mr. Aqua tank. It's basically a full spectrum build that can produce a lot of par according to hoppy's calculator. I also have a dimmer that controls ramp up/down functions. First time I have ever used lights with dimming.
My question is, what do you guys think is a better practice for the best plant growth and color? A shorter photoperiod with an intense noon burst, lets say 6 hrs with a burst of 1hr. Or a longer photoperiod, with less intense light throughout the whole photoperiod, lets say a lower set intensity but for maybe 4 out of 8 hrs of the photoperiod.
