    told you I had something to put in it didn't I I am not sure if the 1st and last are the same thing
    You can also buy a timer for it that will allow you to set sun rise and sun set also set the % of moon light but it does not let you set a time so that means the moon light is on all night not sure if that is a good idea shame because that is what I like about leds to have sun rise and sun set

    Just had a read up on this m8 and it looks like you need to buy the Fluval timer to get all the necessary sun rise and sun set functions to work on any given time you want them to.....but can't see any think that would bring the main lights on at any given time only the remote which means you need to be in to switch these lights on and off.

    Looks like the 2nd generation of these fluval light have it all built in m8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOkcDpdgEYY

    I don't think that is a mk2 mate that is a slightly different one and not a good one at that according to u tube I can buy a timer for mine for 25 but that does not switch the blue leds on at night . It just dims the whites a little I might have to see about a blue led for night time

    T5s are good but the bad side to these is heat ...and you need to change them every 6 months .....so you need to work out cost of this over the next couple of years to what LED would cost, plus the heat factor how you are going to get rid of it.

    There is now some good places for fags in there now Dave.
