Last weekend I hooked up my tank with a DIY moonlight like seen here: http://www.cichlid-forum.com/articles/diy_moonlight.php
It looks great, and only cost me $10 and about an hour of my time. (though at 1 amp, it was way too bright for me, I used 350mA)
Now my question is this:
Do fish like it? My tank, at night, is 100% dark. There is no ambient light at all. Before I would turn on the light at 6 am when I woke and turn it off around 8 pm...now I turn on the moonlight at 8 and off again at 6 am....
In the wild, there would not be 100% darkness, so that would make me think they don't mind. But then again, if I couldn't close my eyes, I would want it dark sometimes.
Who uses a moonlight? And to those who do, should I put it on a timer, so it turns off late at night, like 1 am?
