Question Tank Light

Okay, this may be a silly question, but are you supposed to leave the light in the tank on all the time or can you turn it off? The temperature in the tank is up to 78 or 79. I've been turning it off at night after my daughter goes to sleep but she likes to keep it on during the day. The tank is in her room and it is far away from the window so it doesn't get much natural light either.

Thanks a bunch!

I'd say leave it on 6-8 hours a day.

I was told by the lfs that I only need the light on for 6-8 hours a day. The light is mainly on for live plants or for humans if it is on any longer. Fish need a day and night cycle. I leave my light on for 7.5 hours a day and I have my bedroom light on off and on all day long so Flair is getting some light.
