Pretty much trial and error for me, the longer the moonlights are on, the more often my snowflake polyps release their eggs. And who wouldn't want that? haha

Ok been a few days now with around 6 hours dark. Is there a reason for the darkness? Is it for the fish or the corals?

Yes animals need a day-night cycle just like us humans do. Fish sleep to recover energy and corals feed mostly at night.

I've been diving at night and generally do not see the moon .

Turn off the flashlight and pitch black

I would say the "moonlights" are more useful for us keepers as night viewing lights and dawn dusk simulators.
