    Default Moon lighting

    Sorry if it's a stupid question....I just set up my coralife lighting system over my 90 gallon. It has the moon lighting lights. Should I keep those on all night? or just turn them off when I go to bed?

    Thanks

    The moonlights don't "do" anything for your corals or fish, in terms of a benefit. They are primarily cosmetic and I love the way the tank looks under the moonlights. I leave my LED blues on all night much of the time. Sometimes I turn them off when I go to bed.

    Two things I've noticed with keeping them on all night is-my CandyCane's sweepers won't come out with them on and my nocturnal snails won't come out with them on. For only these reasons I turn mine off at 11pm.
