Never be sorry! 24 hours and 7 days. Lighting on all the time basically. 
For hydroponics, reverse photoperiod, like the reverse photoperiod used in
Reef set ups, is what I was suggesting before we(I) got on to a tangent of
respiration. The fellow who was asking if 24/7 was a good lighting time for
algae and plants for such a filter/scrubber. I believe that 24/7 is not a
good thing for extracting waste or growing plants for such an application.
If someone wishes to see, try leaving your lights on all the time<g> and
tell me what you find after a few weeks in your tank.
