I'm using CO2 now, and I'm going to set it up with my light...

I was told to keep the light on for 8 hrs... is that a solid 8 hrs, or can it be on 2 times for 4 hrs (each time) a day... (which is better for the plants?)

Thank you for all who take the time to read and give advice Smile

Anywhere from 8-12 hours total is usually OK - it can be split in half or one full period, should not matter with CO2.
