    Default Light Times?

    My lights are all on timer. At the moment they are running: blues 8am til 6pm~day 9am til 5pm~lunars 6pm til 6am.

    As summer is almost here with longer days do I need to adjust my lights to longer days also? I don't know why but the Lunars coming on at 6pm really bothers me. Seems to early for lights out.

    I dont think that it matters that the days are getting longer, its preference and, lunar lights are just for your pleasure of veiwing the tank at night, so just what ever you want

    I tend to run my blues around 8 or 9 hours a day, and run the daylights for 6 hours- going on an hour after the blues, and going off an hour or 2 before the blues.
