I have 36gal bf, eheim professional 3 canister filter, 96w quad t5 full spectrum light with a lot of fish and a lot of plants. I use fertilizer tabs monthly, flourish comprehensive supplements every 3 days, API co2 every other day and i have a diy co2 at 1 bubble every 2.5sec. I want my lights on a lot. I want to turn them on at 6am and off at 10pm. I'm thinking 6am I turn on 2 lights, at 2pm turn both on and turn them both off at 10pm. Would this be OK?

Your lighting time is too long you will have algae problems. Replace 1 or 2 bulbs with an actinic so you can still view the tank and reduce your full spectrum lighting time to 8 hours and increase by 1 hour a month until you get to an acceptable balance with the algae growth.
