I just got an ai prime 16 HD light for my tank. I know you can download schedules, but which one is best ? Right now im running david saxbys
Best is subjective. Depends on the size of your tank, what corals you want to grow, and how you want your tank to look. BRS has a few videos out there with different settings based on different tank sizes.

Lots of people claim David Saxby's is a great place to start, but some (including myself) tune the lighting schedule based around their own tank and how it responds to lighting. I start mine off by ramping up the lights from 9:00am to 11:00am. My spectrum is 35% White, 80% on all blues, 75% on purples and UV, and 5% on moonlight, red, and green. I ramp down from 5:30pm to 7:00pm, and it has been working for me. Note that I also do not have any high light SPS like acropora, so I do not max out the blues.
