Moonlights...Leave on 24/7?

Im trying to figure out how many timers I need. I know I need one for the antics and fan, and another for the white lights. Im trying to decide if I need one for the Moonligh to come on and off. Anyone have an adivce? Do the LED's last a long time? Replacable?

I have it on 24/7 for the same reason, but you'll obviously need to replace the bulbs more often. They usually last over a year even when on 24/7, and my coralife ones are replicable.

P.S antics=actinics I spent a little while trying to figure out what that was.

No clue, but it's probably just a small led light. They are rather cheap to replace. I leave my moonlights on 24/7.

well i have a timer on my lunar lights. I once read somewhere that it is good to leave an hour of darkness between actinics and lunar lights.
