Lighting for 10G - Moonlighting

I've taken quite an interest in my tank with the research into moonlighting. I've read a few things that it helps with stress since if timed appropriately the moonlight can ease the fish into night with the darkness change.

On that note, are there are any good setups for a small 10G tank, and then also for a 20G Long tank that anyone could recommend?

This is something I've been wondering about myself. It seems so unnatural that the tanks are bright, then suddenly dark. There should be some sort of natural daytime-nighttime transition.

I know it stresses out my Rainbow Fish, because when I turn off their light, they dart around wildly and crash into the glass.

That said, I'm subscribed to this thread to see what others suggest.
