My skimmer and 1 power head goes off at night.


HOB filter, 2x powerheads stay running. I basically kill the skimmer/1xPH just to give some deadspots in the tank for fish to "relax" if they so choose.

I leave everything on. However, there are some controls that have a different setting for night and day circulation. Though, I do not have one and do not know what that is. I can say that I am sure that all the pumps are never turned off. There should always be water circualtion for many reasons including circulation of organic particals that many corals and other organisms feed on at night and most importantly keeping the temperature uniform as mentioned above.

I have thought about this as well but I have a wrasse and goes into my power heads as soon as I turn them off picking food or whatever out if there. I'm afraid if they just went on and off he might be in there when they start and ugh ohh! So just another thing to think about....
