View Full Version : LIght schedule

So I was wondering, if you have a nocturnal animal (octopus) what if you flip your light schedule and run reds at night to see him.. Would that work like that? Would he then come out during the day (his night) and then sleep when you sleep during his "day"?

Many people with nocturnal species run a reverse light cycle with regular lights on at night and reds only during the day. The octopus can't see the red, so it thinks it is nighttime and you can observe it moving around during the day.
