I was just wondering if there are any real positive results/reasons a person should run a moonlight when your tanks daylights are off? I have heard of this but am not sure of why/ if it would benefit my tank. I am running a 30 gallon with angels, blue rams, harlequin rasboras, corys and ottos.
As far as I know in a freshwater setup the only reasons moonlighting is used is so you can see the fish after the lights have gone off, but this might interfere with the fishes natural resting cycle. Salt water is a different story though as many reefers will tell you their corals need it.

yah angels shouldn't be kept in a 30 gallon tank either way but the rams are pushing it.
38 gallon :
Pelvicachromis Taeniatus Nigerian Red not yet breeding pair
4 Pangio Kuhli
12 Hemmigrammus Bleheri
2 Botia Lohachata
1 Botia Straita
1 Ancistrus Sp.
6 Poecilia Reticulata
The Wet Spot Portland Oregon!!!!!!
ADA: Do!aqua Iwagumi 10 gallon size!
7 Clown Killies
7 Ghost shrimp
I run a LED moonlight strip for one hour in the evening after the main lights kick off. It's solely for my enjoyment as I've got some fish that are nocturnal and I love to see them out and about, even if it is only for an hour.
If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
