Since there are no plants in my tank, do I really need to have a light on? Is it beneficial for the fish? If so, how many hours should it be on per day? I like to have my lights on a timer.

One way to save some power is to cycle the lights off when you are at work, etc. A way to help fight algae is to make a dark period during the light on time. Fish will act different for a time if they are in real dark rooms but no harm done. I set my timer for no lights in the summer just to save heating the tanks.
