when using flourescents it really makes no different if you set the actinics before the whiter lights. if you do it is all about personal preference. it does make more sense when dealing with point light sources like MH's where the lighting power is so much greater than the flourescents.

as for the length of time most people run between 10-12 hours.

HTH,
