Reverse lighting on a fuge?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

 

I have a question, do I need to turn on the light in the fuge exactly when the tank's light is OFF, or 1h before?

 

Thanks

Mine turns on 5 mins after my lights go out. Moon lights still run but are very low.

 

Not sure if it matters as some run fuge light 24hrs.

My main light goes off at 7pm and the fuge light comes on at 10pm and off at 4am, if I run the light any longer, the chaeto simply grows to fast and nitrates go too low for my liking, but 6 hours seems to be the sweet spot for my tank.
