    hey man.. ur light cycle should b around 12hours, and u dont have to have the moon lights on, they are just for your own viewing pleasure.. So u could have them on for abit when lights are out but put them off when u hit the sack...

    Or if u want, u could set a timer on the moon lights and use them according to when there will b a full moon. This is more natural i feel;)
