Recently picked up an aquaticlife 4bulb t5ho fixture...

How long should the noon burst be, where both banks are on?

I will be starting with a total photo period of 6 hours.
When things are a little more established, I will go to an 8 hour cycle.

i hr for a month, the 2 hrs for the next 3 months. now i have a noon burdst for 3 hrs.
whatever way you do, make sure you acclimate the plants to thew light.
in my tanks if i didn't gradulally up the light and just when with a long noon burst, i wold have some algea issues. but then again, that just in my tanks.
