    Best ran opposite your DT lights. Helps with stabilizing PH. I run my fuge light from 1am til 7am. DT lights start at 8am

    It depends on what macro u are using cheato yes a dark period is fine but IMO and have seen over and over other macros turn white and release what they take in in a dark period and go sexual. And whenever they go sexual it will grow in your DT and most people don't want that....

    My Sump is on 24/7 mainly for the caulerpa, otherwise it will go in reproductive mode and cloud my tank
    My buddy has cheato only and does day/ nite cycle

    Thank you Carlos, for some reason I didn't think to ask you first. Especially since it came out of your tank.
