Lunar series good or bad for fishies/algae?


What about Coralife's Lunar Light series with the blue led "moonlight" nightime bulbs?
I understand they are used on saltwater tanks but I was told they are used on freshwater as well.

Would the simulated moonlight be stressful for the fishies? Would they prefer it? I was told that it is soothing for fish, but that's what I'd expect a salesman to say, so I dunno.
Would it cause algae problems?
Do any of you use? Love it? Hate it?

Use it and love it! My tank is a few feet from my bed and after my eyes adjust I can watch the fish. Very relaxing. Being an insomniac it has helped me to fall asleep faster to boot!

I also have a lunar light (Orbit USA). These LED's are more white than blue but still deliver. Mine too is a few feet from my bed and is really relaxing. I recommend lunar lights to all fish keepers, freshwater or marine.
