Has anyone ever tried to wire in an inline dimming switch so when its lights out the effect on the fish is not so drammatic?Not sure if this can be done with non incandesent flourecents.Any input on this subject?
+1 on the moon lights.bass master said:that sounds like a great idea, I know a lot of people add LED moon lights to their tank for night time, perhaps a strip of brighter LED's could be hooked up to a dimmer switch and then double as a moon light
"Moon lights" are typically low-voltage lights (often LEDs) that are designed to replicate the light of the moon, and are usually on a separate power source/switch from the main tank lights. They offer just enough light to barely see the tank inhabitants by, without being bright enough to cause algae problems or disrupt the fish's day/night cycle.michael68 said:How do you turn your grow lights off while just leaving on a moon light,if you only have a single fixture that takes two tubes.My fixture has a 6700k tube and a 10000 k tube for max plant growth.What exactly is a moon light bulb? is it an actinic tube?How do I turn one off without the other?
