Even though I want to do a planted tank, I've seen some really cool dimmed "night" lights when the plant lights are off. (I'm thinking of the big clear kahuna thread) What kind of lights are these?

Do those moonlights do anything or are they more for looks? I know I see it used a lot on saltwater stuff... any benefits to them for us planted folk??

I just wanted something for looks (something cheap for looks though ;)

I would have the real plant lights going for most of the day though, I'd just want a little something to light the tank up when I get home.

In freshwater their for looks, in saltwater, moonlights helps promote spawning cycles.

in SW coral tanks yes. In FW they are just for looks.
The noctournal fish do appreciate it tho.
