Many people will leave the lights on 24/7, but if it creates an algae problem you can use a reverse cycle of your tank lights, which will also help keep pH from dropping at night or whenever the main lights are off.

I agree with James that if you do cut them off have them off when your main is on and vice versa. I keep mine on 24/7 because of the grape calerpa.
