anyone using moonlights on their tank?
« on: January 06, 2018, 21:56:57 »
Thinking of adding moonlights (lsm module) to my apex system.  Just wondering if you felt it was worth while or just a gadget for the tank.  My tank is in my basement so I dont look at it at night after the 11pm lights out. 
thanks

I have for years.   I have seen some spawning events occur with the moon cycle.   But otherwise probably more of a gadget.

If you have a classic apex, I have a lunar module you can have....you would just need the leds

On my stock Fluval EVO tank I am using the Fluval timer.  After sunset the light goes into moonlight mode which I can adjust (essentially it's just the blue lights).  I have it set to 1% which runs the 17.5 hours that the main lights are off.

I'm not sure the tank benefits? But I've been doing this since the start.
