 Hi,
      I've  read  a  few  posts  on  the  net  about  using  split  photo  period  to  control  algae  issues.
 i.e  Lights  ON  few  hrs  -  Lights  OFF  couple  of  hrs  -  Lights  Again  ON  for  a  few  hrs
 Though  I  have  used  this  method  for  the  past  few  months,  I  should  say  that  I'm  not  very  successful  in  controlling  algae  in  my  tank  with  this  method  .
 
   My  question  here,  is  with  regard  to  it's  effect  on  plants.  Do  plants  do  well  or  do  poorly  with  this  split  photo  period,  as  compared  to  a  continuous  8-10  hrs  lighting  ?!
 I  use  a  pressurized  CO2,  with  close  to  2  Watts  per  gallon  PLL  lighting.  
 
 Regards
 Prabhu

 you  don't  need  to  control  light  at  2wpg.  the  issue  lies  somewhere  else.  maybe  nutrients.  size  of  tank/dosing/soil  used??

 Hi,
 
 Even  I  use  split  photo  period
 
 3  hrs  in  the  Morning  and  5  hrs  in  the  evening.  I  had  very  huge  outgrowth  of  algae.  Did  a  complete  black-out  for  two  days  with  feeding  cut  for  the  fishes.
 
 Algae  has  reduced  95%.  Only  hair  algae  is  left.  Still  continuing  the  same  photo  period.  Didnt  see  any  algae  growth  after  this.  Will  see  for  another  two  more  weeks.

 Split  photo  period.i  dont  think   plants  will  have  any  problem  with  this.The  best  thing  is  to  get  to  the  root  of  the  problem  that  is  causing  algae  in  your  tank,in  my  case  i  would  always  do  that.
 
 I  would  have  stretched  this  post  a  bit  longer.but  im  dead  tired  back  from  Aquatika   Sick   But  i  will  be  back.
 
 Raj..

 I'm  not  trying  to  get  info  about  algae  issue  and  split  photo  period  here.  I  understand  that  the  root  cause  of  algae  is  elsewhere.  
   My  question  was,  would  plants  do  better  if  I  use  continuous  photo  period  instead  of  split  photo  period  ?!
