Hello, I have a biocube 32g and I have not noticed very much growth in my corals and have heard/read it could be because of my light schedule. My current light schedule is for the pink (sun rise) lights to come on at 9:30am-10:00am. My whites come on at 10:00am and are on until 5:00pm. My sunset pink lights come on at 5:00pm-5:30pm and then my blue lights come on at 5:30pm to 12:00am. If anyone could recommend a good light schedule to help increase coral growth i would really appreciate it!

I'm using the stock led lights on the biocube , and our lps coral is doing well. Ive adjusted the light schedule slightly after watching their behavior. Heres what my settings are
CH 1 - 9am 5 pm
Ch 2 - 8am - 6pm
Ch 3 - 5pm- 1030pm
The corals seemed to be happier w blues running more than whites , so I have them set longer . I'm noticing our hammer / duncan getting ready to split which is pretty cool for 1st time .
