Fluval Plant 3.0 sunset after midnight?

Hi guys,

I'm looking into getting a new light and really like the custom time setups on the Finnex CC and the Fluval Plant 3.0. I'm kinda leaning more towards the fluval b/c the app looks pretty slick.

Does the app allow you to program sunset after midnight?

I work night shift so my current light is on a basic timer that goes on at 6pm and off at 2am.

I've downloaded the app but I can't play around with it without a light. Haven't seen it on display at any of the local stores either. If anyone with the light can check for me real quick that'd be awesome. I haven't seen anyone with it programmed that way in any demos.

Thanks in advance!

I haven't tried it but I think you could just set the "night" setting as the day period and treat sunrise time as sunset and vice versa (set day pwm settings to night %s and vice versa...) I'll try it at lunch maybe.
