I leave my on all night. There isn't a off switch for mine anyway. It's a bio cube.

Like I said for me I leave them on. I happen to like the effect and there very very dim. I like the shimmer effect when it hits the rocks. The tank it catty cornered in my bedroom. But again I don't have the option of turning them off unless I unplug it. The white and blues have seperate switches which is nice.

I guess it's preference. I mean there's moonlight in the wild right?

My 75 gallon african Cichlid tank is one all night. Just to add....
