For the most part, ask pics of Moonlite tanks shows very little of any blue...my track being the exception...and for 50 bucks I better have an amazing shimmer.

Yeah I hear that! Wish I paid 50! I paid 90 for two 3 LED strips, a transformer and plug extension. Guess its really not that bad. I dunno... I get a really nice shimmer though...

My bad for not being clear when I said 24/7. I was referring to to daylights not moons.

Here's a shot of my tank with moonlights... The flash lit it up but you can get an idea of how dark it would be.. I still need to setup my moonlights at the new house though...

Wish I had paid that much I paid $600 for moonlights and day lights with fans and controller. But my tank is 100 gallons 24" height 48"wide and 18"depth.

Sry, should have been clear when I wrote 24/7. I meant daylights.

I've never heard of anybody leaving daylights on 24/7. That would be terrible for the fish. How could they sleep ? No eyelids.
And that might cause bad algae problems too.
Better total darkness at night than daylights.
