Yes, you should run them at the same time. If you're happy with the look then there's no need to change anything.

Look in the sponsor special forum we are runing a special on moonlites right now for AA.com members. If you want moonlites and are going to upgrade in the future take a look at the Custom SeaLife power compact moonlight hoods. These would allow you to keep pretty much anything except SPS and clams and they have built in moonlites. Just food for thought
