Lunar lights or moon lights

O corals need a lot of lunar light because I bought the Coralife 24" T5 4 bulb with 2 Lunar lights. The lunar lights don't light the tank up completely just where they shine really is that okay? My corals close up when I turn them on at night.

Pretty much all my corals close up or sleep so to speak at night under my moonlights. And during the day everything is wide open looking awesome. My brains, mushrooms, rocordias etc all get smaller in size under the moon. It's completely normal.

I keep my moonlights on 24/7. No ill effects.

Ok thanks I'm new to these lights. On my other lighting system I had more moonlights and everything stayed open.
