    Hi All, I need some advise on feeding fish in the morning. I feed twice a day but in the morning I need to leave for work before the lights come on so the fish will not eat the food. Is it ok to put the lights on for half an hour to feed the fish and then off again for the normal timed switch on?

    why not put some of your lights on an earlier timer to simulate sunrise ... perhaps just one of the lights ???

    Get an automatic feeder and get it to drop food in the morning but when the lights are on

    Thanks for the responses so far. Unfortunatly all my lights come on at the same time. There is only one unit so they are all connected.

    An automatic feeder is an option but I have a hood with the lights in it so I will have to make a plan so that it fits under the hood.

    Don't you use aquatics? I run my blue's 4 hours longer than the white(2-2). I know some fish are dusk and dawn feeders and I don't want to scare the **** out of the fish in having no light and then all lights on.
