Intro coral question

I know when u intro fish n coral u should keep it completely dark. That's what I always do. I was just wondering if it ok for the led blue moonlights to on when u first put the coral in the tank?

You should turn them all off. Ive even read suggestions on turning down/off the lights in the room as well.

They will be fine with the moonlights on. The only reason lights are shut off to begin with is for less risk of shock such as from weak lighting to very strong lighting.

I keep my lights on even and i have never had a problem. Usually coral is open first few hours with lights on, i may feeding it depending what it is and then its lights off and moonlights on. No harm at all.
