Adjust Daylight and Moonlight Lights Seasonally
I'm considering starting another tank in the near future, and have been considering a 28 gallon biocube. It comes with daylights and moonlights to act like sunlight and moonlight in nature.
These lights really interested me. I live in an area where daylight hours change quite a bit between summer and winter months. During summer nightfall arrives at around 8 PM and the sun is up before 6 AM and in winter nightfall comes at 5 PM and sunrise is at 7 AM.
I was just wondering, out of curiosity mostly, that if I would start another aquarium, should I adjust the switching between daylights and moonlight seasonally or should I stick to a basic 12 hours for each schedule? The room I would put the tank in has a window (although the tank wouldn't be near it) so the fish would get sunlight whether I adjust the lights seasonally or not. I'm just wondering if one should adjust their lights seasonally.
