LED Moonlight for a 20G Planted Aquarium. SD Quality Video
I originally got the idea of DIY moonlighting on my city's local aquarium forum.
If a fish swims in the dark and no one can see it, is it really swimming? Well, yes, but why wouldn't you want the best light possible to see your fish swim in their aquarium -- day or night? That's where these LED light fixtures come in to play.

Of all the lighting options available to aquarists, LED aquarium lighting is becoming one of the more popular choices for both marine, reef and freshwater hobbyists. Aquarium LED lighting was initially used only as moon lights for reef aquariums, but LED aquarium lights have since grown into much more. Now you can find aquarium LED lights for reef tanks that put out as much PAR as a metal halide system, but without the additional heat and high electric bill.
Raspberry Pi driven Marine Aquarium Moonlighting
I found this by googling 'Moonlight Aquarium'
The use of Moonlights in aquariums (Reef in particular) is a commonly misunderstood and often one of the more inaccurately stated subjects that is unfortunately repeated by aquarium forums, websites, product manufacturers, and retailers (especially the many discount retailers that have unfortunately overwhelmed the industry/hobby such as Pet Mountain, That Fish Place, Doctor Foster & Smith, PetCo, etc).White aquarium lights tend to be used as natural moonlights. Blue lights also can be used as moonlights but white is thought to be more natural. Moonlighting is a term given to lighting that simulates the glow a moon gives off at night. It can help stimulate reproduction in some corals and other invertebrates, even a few select fish and creates a more natural environment. Blue lighting can also be used as purely decoration purposes. Red lighting can be used to view nocturnal creatures without disturbing then since it seems that most can not see red light. You also can use the lights during the day to create different types of features in your tank. An example is putting one by a air stone and shining the light upwards creating blue, green, or red bubbles.
