Nope. It's not necessary besides unless you have plants, the energy consumed for nothing is just a waste.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

The bacteria derive their energy from the ammonia and the nitrites they are converting. It is their food.
