    so the time has come i have taken the plunge and purchased a t5 metal hailide combo with moonlights.
    Here is the questions
    1. How long should i run the hailides for and how long during aclimation
    2. Some one told me i should run the t5 tubes two hours before and one hour after the hailiade
    3. I want the blues to come on at 3pm and switch off at 10pm and the hailide from 5pm until 9pm

    What are your thoughts
