I was wondering if running my lights from 830 am till 7 pm is too long for my plants. I have amazon swords and java ferns. I was also thinking about adding some Sagittaria. I have 2 Bright Effects 7-Watt Tubalar CFL 40-Watt Replacement in the hood. Let me know what you think.
That's 10.5 hours if I added correctly. That is an OK amount of time. Unless you start getting algae you can reduce the time.

He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

I don't think that's too long of light duration nor too intense lights. I run my tanks 12hrs/day and have the very named plants in there incl the Sagt w/out any issues.
