Aquarium Night Light - 10 Gallon

I hate putting my fish in complete darkness at night. Anyone know of a nice night light for a standard 10-gallon tank? Moonlight would be cool.

Complete darkness is ok, it relazes them. Their sleep can be disturbed by the smallest of lights.
I actually feel bad for my fish on weekends when because I'm keeping the lights in the room on later.
I have a Marineland light that has night and day settings but never use the night one. But it requires no hood or see-through hoods.

Yeah, complete darkness is natural so there's nothing wrong with it. Fish "sleep" too, so it's fine.

I keep my moonlight on all night..My betta goes into his sleepy place where it's dark when it's bed time.

Would you happen to know if this LED light is good for plants in a 10 gallon tank.

I have the same and it will maintain low to medium light plants.
If you're using on a 10galon, you will need to find a clear top for it because you will get excess water evaporation and the power cord for this light is detachable and could fall into your water.
I got some plexiglass from the hardware store for my tanks.
