nighttime dosing?

Just to circumstances beyond my control (it's summer here and it gets really hot some days), I have scheduled lights on at 5am and finishes at around 2pm.

I have been reading and it seems it's advisable to dose just before lights on. But since I will not wake up before 5am, is it okay to dose at night?

thank you

Tank: 48in(H)x18in(W)x28in(H) | filtration: 2x2000LPH canister | substrate: Up-Aqua Aqua Soil | fertilizer: EI+pressurized CO2 | light: 2x54W T5HO+2x150W halide+2x moonlight

Yes the plants won't use the C02 and ferts until the lights are on so no big deal as long as you stick to your regiment.
