I have plans to be getting some supplies for a betta today, and before I left I had a quick question about lighting. I'm hoping to be getting a tank with a built-in lamp. My question is if the light should be turned off after certain times or does it make a difference for the fish? I would like to assume that bettas have a light-based cycle and sleep, so that was what was making me wonder.
I have the idea of getting some of those bulbs that I've read about so positively here as well, so after that happens I surely know that I will need a light cycle to keep the plants from exploding in growth :P.
I am very happy that I found this forum!
