I think the moonlight LEDs are designed so that you can actually leave them on all night, if you wanted to, without disturbing the fish, as it creates an environment for them as if their natural habitat was being flooded with natural moonlight overhead...

Someone else with more experience with these may chime in, though...

I leave mine on all night, and it's amazing what comes out. My corals even produce eggs and release them during moonlight hours.

Considering that the fish use moonlight to guide their breeding cycles, there is no harm in leaving them on. Also, especially in a reef tank, your fish will go behind or underneath the rocks and corals so they won't be seeing the light anyway so they will sleep when they are tired.

When I return from the trip I am currently on, I will upload to my albums 2 pictures of my old artificial reef tank. They were taken 10 minutes before and 10 mins after the lights went off for the night. You'll see what I mean about the fish disappearing to sleep ( Check back to my profile in mid June.)
