It depends on the positioning of the light. I have a bunch of copy paper propped against the side of my tank, which seemed to ease her reflection chasing anxiety. But yeah, I would definitely turn the light off at night.

i think he is trying to find it to finish it off, and the bubble nests r to mark his territory, hes not mad tis gone, hes mad he didnt kill it before u took it away.
