I've got mine on all night. No issues. Don't think fish mind having a night light.

Alright how long have you had your tank going?
The light I have has multiple LEDs that are blue. Just have been leaving those on.

That looks a bit brighter than simulated moonlight. The fish need to sleep and corals, if any, definitely need a period without light. I would shut that light off.

Yeah the Deep blues on my light are really bright still. So the solar xstreme light I'm using had LEDs for moonlight.
