    Hey guys,

    I'm running purely T5's 3xblue and 3xwhite, atm my cycle is as follows:

    10:00-22:00 - 2xblue (12hours)
    10:30-21:30 - 1xblue+1xwhite (11hours)
    11:00-21:00 - 2xwhite (10hours)

    Everything seems fine... minus maybe my bleached mushrooms.

    Is this about right? over the top? etc... Tank size is 1.5mx0,75mx0.5m

    Thanks,
    Paul

    I think that is fine. If anything you would only need to shorten you lighting cycle by about an hour.
