    Sorry this may be a bit of a noob question but what is the best light cycle to have on chaeto in the sump? Reverse to DT or 24/7?

    Plants need darkness to respire so.....:whistling:

    My sump lights are off when my DT lights is on and then sump is on when DT is off.

    Helps to keep PH stable I think. if there is lights on somwere 24/7

    Reverse to DT is best, about 12 hours light will be fine.
