Question Lunar Tracker and Spawning

Anyone used the Lunar Tracker from theLebos.com when breeding clowns?

http://www.thelebos.com/

I was wondering if it was worth the money or not? Or for that matter, is any lunar light worth bothering with for spawning of clowns?

Thanks,
Jay

I use a similar program, but don't know if it affects spawns.
Last hatch didn't happen during a new moon like the first.

It's never seemed to make a difference, but just for the fun of it I've run a 10ft length of blue rope light over the middle of my parent system.
I run it overnight for two weeks on/two weeks off.

Thanks, I didn't think it would matter too much but I thought I would asked before I threw in $50

Thanks,

It is not needed. Only some form of dim light at night.

IME your fish will sync up with the moon even if they can not see the moon light, even if you have a simulator that is out of sync with the real world.
