Lights when you go away?

We are due to go away this thurs and be back in the house again mon/tues. I know my boys will be sulky but can go that kinda length of time with no food (both happy and healthy!) but what I was wondering about is the lighting situation. Jorah's tank has a 'daylight' and 'moonlight' setting. I dont wanna leave the tank on a daylight setting as it would be a mass of green fuzz by the time I come back. Should I just leave it off completely? Or pop it onto the moonlight one? Suggestions?

Mine are on a timer because I have live plants. But really, unless you have those, the lights are only for your viewing pleasure. It would probably be best to just leave them off.

Then you should probably invest in a timer. You don't have to get one for aquariums. I am pretty sure they have some cheap ones at Walmart and the like. However, if you have low light plants and they are near a window or at least in a well lit room, you might also be fine.
