What do you use for Lunar Simulation?

    As the title states, I'm curious as to what people use for simulating lunar activity. I'm considering adding a lunar system but I'm not quite sure what way to go. If there were not any restrictions, I would use the ReefKeeper set up, but that is not an option for me at this time.

    Apex makes a decent lunar module for their system, but otherwise I think most people dont bother, or just use 1-2 deep blue leds

    I use AI Hydra HD's with their built in wifi controls through the app. I use the purple lights at 1% which is not as bright as the blues because there is only one purple node per puck. looks nice

    I have the rapid led moonlight kit on my biocube. Does very nice. I enjoy limited light but still see what's going on in the middle of the night

    My lights run off the Blue Fish mini controller and do a fine job with its built in lunar cycle.

    I dont run a lunar schedule, im a firm believer that the zooanthenelle need a rest to, and even blue light in the faintest amount entices photosynthesis.
