Moon light effect by Marineland DB LED light. You can find that and many other options online.

Moon lights are typically blue and sometimes white low intensity LEDs used to simulate moonlight in the aquarium. Some believe that lunar lighting cycles may trigger spawning with some corals and fish. I think in practical terms for most it's just a nightlight for the aquarium to observe what all is going on when it's nighttime.

There are some add on kits for them. I have them built in on the main fixtures of my two reef tanks. Only my 37 is running at the moment and I use the moonlights to check on new fish or to observe things after I do work when the lights have been out to make sure no inhabitants are freaking out.

If you're trying to add on a moonlight, you might consider these:

Results for DIY Retrofit Kits:Moonlight Kits

I've never used them before, but I've seen them mentioned in a lot of threads, and the price seems reasonable.
