"Lunar" Light Compacts question.

Are these worth the extra money of just a gimmick? The ad says" for the 12 hours in the evening...". Frankly, my fish are fine in the wee might hours.

But, during the later evening when normal humans are viewing, do they look good (moonlight-like??) for viewing? TIA

Teh moonlight is really only for your pleasure only. It does look real neat at night though! They are not real bright but you can see OK in the tank.

The lunar lights really bring out the corals in my tank. The lights make them glow. Awesome looking.

I got the coralife lunarlight with the leds from Darin at Captivereefs. I love them. The nightlights are really cool looking.

You can't go wrong with Coralife. All their models are money worthwhile spent.
