No you have to change it with the toggle switch. Kinda sucks. I purchased other lights that I use as the moon lights.

I'm considering order 4 of these kits to install in the canopy:
Coralife Aqualight Compact Fluorescent Retrofit Lighting Kit, 2X65 Watt, 24 inch

Keeping in mind this is a FOWLR tank: thoughts?

I'd avoid the CF lighting. Its expensive to replace the bulbs, they are becoming somewhat harder to find, and they really put out quite a bit of heat. Personally, I'd look to T5 or LEDs with FOWLR.

On the LED suggestion:
How many of these "Panorama Pro" stips would one install in a FOWLR tank?

I don't have a good sense of the quantity needed.

For fish only lighting is only for your viewing pleasure. For the 72 inch. I would try to put 4 or 5. To start.
