About to set up my HOB fuge. Going to put chaeto in it, how long should I light it?

I run my fuge light 18 hours a day. Some people run theirs opposite the tank lights to keep pH stable.

chaeto doesn't require any special lighting requirements like Carlurpa (sp). I run my lights 12 hrs a day, my chaeto light runs the same time as my tank lights. been doing it for a year and a half, i have good growth, and 0 nitrates. I have to prune every 3 months or so
