Part time skimming

Anyone Run their skimmer only part time? My HOB Skimmer makes a bit of noise and I wondered if it might work out to only run it when the lights are on. they,the fan actually, make a bit of noise and with all the other stuff going on during the day I hardly notice it. But in the evening when the only lights on are the moonlights(no fan) it would be nice not to listen to the skimmer either.

Any thoughts ??


I hope someday to be the person my dog thinks I am!

Shouldn't be a problem to run it part time, some don't run them at all. Personally, I never hear the background noise of the tank, but when something stops making that noise...it get's my attention quick
