what kind of lighting?

Hello-
I'm trying to figure out what is the best lighting for Red. Do they like it dark or half and half?

Thank you.
I figured if I keep him where he gets sunlight it should be fine. I'm not sure if he needs a night light..

Not too much sunlight, it will cause a lot of algae on your tank, could also change the water temp..but a lil here and there is ok, but for lighting if you have a light on your tank, you could use it for daytime, then at night I would recommend you turning it off, because betta's have a sleep/rest cycle like our own, and need to be in the dark, to sleep and too much light after a certain amount of time, will stress them out, if they don't get a good night's sleep..like us..
