Do you remember many hours they recommend for the lights to be on?
I do not recall. I just set mine up to mimic a normal day. I am in process of discussing a particular light Aquanest M8. We are talking about that very thing now. The Aquanest has a suggested pre set light pattern for LPS, and SPS corals. It would be interesting to see. Here are my set schedule on this light

I do not see where my reply is so I will maybe repeat myself. I am discussing this very thing about the Aqauanest M8. I just set it up as a normal day. I have no idea if this is correct. Hopefully I will get a response. Every tank also has different approach, as I am learning as well. However my other tank is proving to be a very good learning curve. My lighting there seems to be correct. These are my settings at the moment if you go to the thread you will see there's
