    Hello Guys,

    Anyone tried having light break in their HC? what i mean is that setting it to light 8am-12noon then light off at 12noon to 1pm then light on on 1pm to 5pm again?

    does this make any sense?

    The only thing this accomplishes is saving some CO2. If you have a non CO2 tank and a long photoperiod (because of viewing time) it makes some sense. If you use CO2, it doesn't make much sense.
