I didn't ... I left my timers set exactly as they were. My lighting schedule was 9am to 9pm and now it's 10am to 10pm. I don't think it would matter as long as they are getting the same light cycle as before!

God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!

I changed mine today, but that was for my benefit. I doubt the fish even notice.

This is how I look at it. To the fish DST and ST dont exist. The sun comes up when it does and goes down when it does and since most of our fish are from the tropics region thats fairly standard every day unlike those of us in the northern or southern hemispherse away from the equator. We have different amounts of day/night period thru the year where as the tropics is very close to the same amount of light/dark year round.

Now if personally you have your timmers set to turn on at a specific time so they turn off at a set time and you might want that time to be just prior to or just after you yourself turns in on a regular basis than you might wish to change the timming somewhat but by no means do you need to.

Remember dont tap the glass, your fish will think you're an idiot -Anonymous mother
