Fish should have at least 10 hours of absolute darkness daily. Otherwise, stress will occur and that brings on disease and poor health and long-term other issues.

As I say, just a heads-up in case; some people think they can leave the moon lights on during the entire night period.

Byron thanks for the info. My lights come on in the am until the sun comes up and we open the blinds, then they are off until around 330 or so and I keep them on until about 9pm so they are not running all day. I need to get some timers and hook them up. Thanks for the advice though!
