What is the best way to run the lighting on a sump?

ten years ago we did it a little different,

i run my sump almost as the primary tank (*its where all the control, water changes, and dose'n occure)





this hair algae (even though i have not really identified it yet) is so much better then the blue green bryoposis i fought for ever on the last setup



ok so this was just a few days over a month ago a vendor from ebay actually... came out of marathon Fl, did 2 orders, with the guy back to back, one of this cheto, and then a few days later a 50peice snail set

very happy (*i dont know if im allowed to plug for people so im not going to mention names)





what is the best light cycle to run? as far as time and intensity? kessil
24 hour lighting, offset from the Display tank up stair light cycle, during the day the intensity drops and then at night it gets stronger

the light cycle,alternates between the 2 tanks kinda, where my display tank gets more natural light and then supplied light in the evening
the sump gets its strongest light (*downstairs) 12hr offset


what is best for the type of hair algea and cheto?
