If I wanted to keep my lights on for 12 hours, does it make a difference weather its 12 hours straight or intermittent?

Lets say the light is on a timer and it turns on at 6 am to noon and 6 pm to midnight. Is there any benefit from having it setup like this?

It's perfectly fine to do a split photoperiod/siesta.

If you have a low-tech tank, it may even be beneficial, as the siesta can allow carbondioxide to replenish in some cases.
