Learn how to create your blue LED light, lighting cycle. Set when the lights turn on and off for the best lighting sequence in your aquarium. Follow a few simple steps.
If you do add a light to your aquarium then switch it off at night to replicate natural day/night cycles. Like humans, .

There are a number of controllers on the market claiming to simulate timing and variable intensity of natural moonlight. This article is not intended to review all those available. Instead, I describe the one I own - the Tunze Multicontroller 7095. This device's main function is that of controlling Tunze pumps but includes a LED for moonlight simulation. The only thing a hobbyist has to do is turn the moonlight LED on when the real moon is full and the controller automatically does the rest. A photo-sensor will turn the LED moon on when the aquarium lights go out and lunar phase intensity is controlled over a 29 day cycle. See Figure 11 for a close up view of the photo-sensor/LED and Figure 12 shows the spectral characteristics of the LED. Where to Buy Aquarium Light Cycle Online

TIP: Remember, your Betta will need to live in an environment that closely resembles their . Like humans, they need a cycle of light (day) and darkness (night). This is best done through a timer that is connected to the lights in your aquarium, which will ensure that this all-important cycle is not disturbed even if you are not around.The photoperiod (or duration) is simply the length of time the lights are on in the aquarium. In other words, if a light is on from 10 AM to 10 PM, then the photoperiod is 12 hours. Since most of the plants and animals we keep are from tropical locations, the photoperiod from where they naturally occur remains fairly constant, around 12 hours. Therefore, it is recommended that this is reproduced in the aquarium. Usage of a timer for the lights goes a long way in ensuring this. Replacing intensity by extending the photoperiod as an attempt to “help” photosynthetic organisms is not recommended. All animals abide by an internal clock, like we do, and throwing this off will increase stress levels for them. Fish do not have eyelids, and need a dark period to rest. During the day, fish are “on guard”, watching for potential enemies and prey. At night they rest and sleep. If the daytime is extended, the fish feel the need to be alert, and this drains energy resources, paving the way to trouble. Additionally, those animals and plants that utilize light as a food source need a dark period to continue normal growth patterns. Photosynthesis consists of a light cycle and a dark cycle. During the light cycle, light is turned into energy usable for the plant to use in other functions. During the dark cycle, the energy created during daytime is used to synthesize proteins and sugars necessary to sustain the life of the organism. The plants and animals must have a daytime and a nighttime.Photoperiod represents the length of time the light is turned on. A ten to twelve (10-12) hour light cycle is suggested for a planted aquarium. Consistency in photoperiod can be obtained by purchasing an inexpensive light timer. Hobbyists can experiment with increasing or decreasing the photoperiod to affect the growth rate of their plants.Strangely the light cycle of the aquarium will moderate your use of that room. You will find yourself in the room when the lights are on and out of it when the lights are off. The living room is the most common room for a planted aquarium to be displayed in. the use of a timer will help you to establish a regular sleep cycle too.
