    The noon lighting can be turned on a few minutes before the main lighting goes off and remain on for a few minutes after the main lighting coming back on. Over lap the timer settings and run the noon light for the full time between main lights off and on cycle.

    OK. . .I feel like I am selling drugs to an addict, but I have to point this out. If you have an extra $100 or so this is a really cool moonlighj controller.

    Wow that is cool. I wonder if something that tracks the natural lunar cycles might trigger corals to spawn and fish to mate?

    I can simulate Sunrise/sunset and moonlight with my Aquacontroller. I'm not using that feature yet, although I plan to sometime soon.

    Flame,
    In regards to spawning behaviour, I've read in several places that it does indeed induce coral and fish to mate, however this is hearsay and there is no concrete evidence of this.

    Vince i would bet that the fish and coral are more affected by the height of the tides then the amount of light but no one really knows for sure. It's sort of like dogs and other pets. If they don't hear you come in or leave they will feel the change in pressure when the door is opened or closed.

    plus wouldn't it just be kewl to say your aquarium simulates dusk, dawn, hign noon, and mimics what phase the moon is in. Come on don't you think that something like that would be worth braging about?
