Question lunar lighting

Im thinking about rigging an ultraviolet led strip on a separate light timer at night to give the fish a moon phase, would it be ok to have this go off nightly? and for how many hours?

Check out the r2 moonlights. You can also get a moon phase controller to go with it. I have one and it is very cool. Only 60 bucks for full set.
