    nice. this is mine but I don't really have the growth you have

    10:50 - color 0% (blue) intensity 5%
    11:00 - color 10% (blue) intensity 80%
    12:00 - color 100% (white) intensity 60%
    18:00 - color 10% (blue) intensity 80%
    21:00 - color 0% (blue) intensity 5%
    21:10 - color 0% (blue) intensity 0%

    You have a long light schedule how does that affect your algae?

    Right now, I'm on an 8hr shift from 7pm to 3am....during the off hours I have my algae scrubber running for 16hrs....4am to 7pm

    When I 1st added the scrubber, it was on for 24hrs straight for about 2 weeks to get some growth going

    nice thats a long schedule for your DT. Does your algae scubber keep your algae at bay or do you have algae in your tank?

    I do have some algae in my tank but it's very noticeable....so with I'm assuming I have a good balance in my tank. But yes I do swear by my alage scrubber

    What I meant to say was, is that the algae in my tank is unnoticeable
