What gets turned off at night?

Other than lights what do you turn off at night? Anything?

It would seem hard for the fish to rest at night with all of the water screaming around in every direction.

I could shut off the PH's and leave the 2 filters running but***** should I?

Nope, the ocean currents don't stop at night when the sun goes down and neither should ur PH's. The fish will find calm spots to rest in.

Keep everything running but the lights.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p

Definitely keep it all running, except the lights, unless you have the lunar LEDs.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
