    Default Lighting question

    I have zoas/palys/kenya tree and favia~what's the shortest amount of time I can keep the tank light? At the moment I have em on for 9 1/2hrs~I'd like to cut it down to see if this would slow the algae growth down if not kill it.

    like to glue animals to rocks and put disturbing amounts of electricity and saltwater next to each other!

    I get .0 readings of phos from using the API master kit~which I'm told is unreliable~just really wanted to know how low hour wise I could go without hurting my corals.
