T5 HO lights orders?

I got an 8 bulb t5 ho light fixture, half actinic and half daylight all are 24watts each. The thing is it does not have the on off buttons on it. It does however have two cords that are attached to timers. I want to know what order should I have on it.

1st cord = controls 4 center bulbs

2nd cord = controls 2 outer left and 2 outer right bulbs.

My setup now is.. 4 center bulbs = actinic and 4 outer are daylight.

Is this good or should I do a diff order?

I'd run 4 Actinics on an hour or 2 before the all whites. Then again at night, run em and hour or 2 longer after white lights out.
