Proper Photoperiod

2289 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  guerdonian
It seems that many people have multiple photoperiods throughout the day consisting of lights on for a couple of hours, and then off, then finishing with a large photoperiod of four to six hours if not longer. What is the proper photoperiod and what is the purpose of these "on-off" times (algae, photosynthesis, etc)?

This is a great idea! I have decreased my photoperiod due to algae growth, but my tank lights go on after i leave for work, and go off by the time i get home. I will definitely be switching to this double light cycle idea.:thumbsup:
