MORE INFO PLZ!!!!!!
size of tank in liters
type of light tube you have
what wattage is your heater
by sun light i presume you mean uv light no fish do not need actual uv light however if you want plants they do
the amount of time you have the light on can vary to your needs in most aquariums people do not adjust the light timers to simulate the seasons so you can pick any season form the fish you keep and give the amount of light you like and the fish will just act like it is the respective season
