If the tank is freshwater then they are not really need. They are more for looks really. Saltwater they are actually used as part of the day/night cycle for corals etc but again not everyone uses them.

Personal choice if you want to get some or not.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

No, the fish should have a period of total darkness, turn them off before you go to bed. leave them on for maybe an hour after your turn the main tank lights off.

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

I really like my LED moonlights. I leave them on all night - in the wild, it's only for a few days a month (new moon) that the fish ever get total darkness.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
