Hehe what a funny question.
I usually turn off the aquarium light around 7.30/8pm and leave a lamp on in my room so I dont startle them when I go to bed.

their lights go off when mine does. Could be anywhere from 12 AM to 5 AM. They get up when I do, 9:30 AM to maybe 2PM. They don't seem to mind my odd sleep schedule.

I usually only leave the hood light on until 8-9pm, and then I have a lamp on the other side of my desk that I leave on for myself. The tank is fairly dark, and then he usually wakes up when I do because he knows he's gonna get fed. P:

Go to bed when I do, so usually about 12 AM. Sometimes I feel bad for them and the snakes, so I turn off the lights at about 10, to allow some extra sleep ^_^ My room stays dark all day, though, so they sleep during the day. It's cute on the weekends when they're all used to their schedules, and are all groggy when I wake them up early :P Poor babies.

Jeffery the cookie jar housed VT lives on our kitchen table, he gets indirect sunlight and then at night it's just a matter of however long we're up until the kitchen lights got off. He doesn't mind it though, he naps on his floating anicharacis around mid day.

The tank's light I turn on whenever I'm up, and I try to leave it on for only 8 hours (I do however want a stimulated moon light for the tank). I do this because of my plants as well as Gyarados my DT. I've learned since getting him a few days ago that he's very sensitive to light (he's a dragon with metallic scales on his eyes, so I'm figuring it's that) so among the few things I've done to alleviate his problem I now shut his light off after 8 hours, which he seems to appreciate.
