Hi guys so recently set up a marine tank, only bit thats really confusing me is the lights

I've done some research so I get confused easily

So I have my light set up but just want to make sure I'm doing it right!

I'm wanting to keep corals

So my current set up for the lights is

20000 Kelvins

12am - 5pm
I have set the blue to come on and will ramp up to 50% from 2pm my uv + violet ramps up to 40%

5pm - 9pm
Uv + violet at 40%
Cool white and royal blue 50%
Blue 80%

9pm-10pm
Lights ramp down until they go off


Currently just getting to the diaton stage as starting to see few brown spots on rocks and substrate

I've also see that red, green and warm white cause Alage issues

Tanks going on 2 weeks now used colony and have 2 clowns currently feeding every other day

I've attached picture of light graph

Cheers

So what do you think about running carbon as a filter for your aquariums?
