Moonlights, if I am not mistaken, are to come on when the main lights go out... much as the moon comes up after the sun goes down.. They are designed to hopefully induce spawning and such...

90 min after you main light goes off turn the moon light on and then 90 min before your normal cycle of "daylight". IME. HTH

mine stay on all the time, when the other lights come up, they just arent noticeable..and it is easier than remembering to turn them on and off all the time.

Yea, that is what mine do. They don't take up much energy, so I jaut have them on all the time, and you see them when the lights go out.

Agreed, my moon-lite just sits up there and runs all day and all night. Its only pulling 1 watt of power and doesn't get hot. If only the rest of them did that...
