Sunrise/sunset lights?

I know a bunch of people use blue (or sometimes white) moon lights - does anyone have thoughts on adding some red lights for sunrise/sunset? Think it'd be beneficial ... or cool? I was thinking LEDs; they're dead simple to wire and come in more colors than I can count.

I have red lights as monlights. Fish can't see them and I can see in. I use an "infrared" led that has a good visible spectrum.
