Human beings function according to sunrises and sunsets. We get up in the morning and sleep at night. Maybe we don't think about it all the time, but nature surely affects the patterns and cycles of not just human beings, but all living creatures. Aquatic animals
are no exception. The lunar cycle has a great influence on their spawning cycle.
Given that, there's a reason to worry about the fish living in your aquarium. Since they're cooped up indoors and away from the moonlight, how can their spawning cycles work? There are two solutions: 1) Bring your tank up on the roof every night or 2) Simulate the moon cycle with the Digital Aquatics Reefkeeper Lighting Controller RKM-MLC. Option 1 isn't very practical while option 2 is, so pretty easy to point out the obvious choice.
The the Digital Aquatics Reefkeeper Lighting Controller RKM-MLC from Pet Store
is a small piece of equipment that simulates the lunar cycle, with its exact 29.53-day duration. It has two nocturnal blue pods that emit a low-glare bluish light which is perfect for simulating nighttime. The lights fade in and out with gradual transition so that your fish will not have a hard time adjusting to any light changes.
You can add more pods until you reach the maximum of six if you want a stronger light or if you have a bigger tank to light up. Need more? Just add more controllers -- problem solved!Digital Aquatics RKM-MLC w/ 2 Nocturnal Blue PodsTech Specs
