Hello!

Im working with a t5 hybrid lighting setup over a 45 gallon mixed reef.
My leds are cheap aquaknights at this point on timers at 100% blue.
My t5’s are 2 blue 2 actinic.

I currently have the first led turn on at 10:30 am and the second turn on at 11:15am to simulate the sun rising from one side to the other.

I then have the rear t5’s turn on and run from 11:15am to 6:50 pm

the front t5’s turn on from 12am to 7:40pm.

so all lights are on from 12-6:50 full for 7 hours.

my questions are:

1. does this seem to be enough or too much

2. should I focus on using the t5’s as the main lights and the leds as supplements

Thanks!
