Lights off?
Ok I need a really quick answer, it would be awesome if someone could give me a hand asap.

I didn't think about it until right before I had to leave, But I'm going to be gone for like a day and a half, and no one can come here. So should I turn the lights off? wouldn't that be kind of harmful to my plants??

Just buy an automatic timer for your light.

I'd leave them on. I've been out of time for a few days at a time and have left the lights on the entire time.

I love my timers. I got mine at Walmart for about $5 each. But if you don't have time to pick one up I would just leave the lights on since it's only a day and a half.

Agreed on the timers- radio shack, the hardware store, even IKEA sell them. If you don't have a chance to pick one up though, leave the lights off.

I agree that you should leave them off. Very little consequence of doing so where leaving them on can stress the fish and possibly cause an algae bloom.
