Light Cycle/Evaporation While Out Of Town

I have a 4 day trip coming up and with my 8 hour MH/fan cycle, I get minor evaporation. I have someone coming by to top the tank....but I hate relying on people, especially non-aquarium knowledgable ones:p If I were to cut my MH/fan cycle to say 4 hours per day to minimize evaporation in case he forgets to come by one day or just can't make it, will it have a detrimental effect on my corals?? I have several montis, acros, and pociliporas and a few LPS's that worry me. My softies and zoas don't concern me as much. With a 4 hour cycle, my evap will be minimal and if he can't make it one day, no harm no foul

It shouldn't have any negative impact on your coral stocks.

Low's high 40's, and it got into the low 60's today probably. Very nice weather right now. Spent all day outside with my boy.
