How many hours lights?

I have a biocube 29 fowlr and was wondering if my current lighting schedule is ok? I turn on actinic 1hour before both actinic and whites and then actinics go on for last hour and then moonlights. So i run lights for a total of 6 hours, does that seem good?

I run my lights from

1130 - Actinic ON
1200 - 10k ON
2300 - 10k OFF
2330 - Actinic OFF

Just curious, why do you guys run your lights for such a short period?

My tank is a fowlr so you dont really need to have lights on for long if you dont have corals and it prevents algae outbreaks.

I had corals growing quite well under my lighting schedule(tank is being restarted and repaired right now) I didn't do the acintics separate though which I should have...
