lighting questions...duration?

14g biocube. right now my lights are on timers. florescent on from 5 pm to 9 pm. actinic on from 9 pm to 10 pm. can/should either of these be extended to longer periods of time? tank is about 6 weeks old, almost completely done cycling. 3 astreas and a half dozen hermits. oh, also found a little bristle worm crawling in and out of the rock work a couple of days ago!

tia! :)

White lights can be on for a FOWLR for 8-10 hours and the Actinics on 2 before and 2 after white lights.
For a Reef tank lights can be on for 10-12 hours, using the Actinics the same way.
