I use a lamp to light my tank, and I bought an automatic on/off timer at Walmart for $5. You can set what times you want the light to come on or go off, and it'll do it for you! It's good for my betta when I'm not going to be around :)

It looks like this: http://www.amazon.com/Hampton-Brinks.../dp/B001G4606M

For those people that would want to keep the light on at night, I have an idea. Its just an idea. Not sure if its good or bad. People could comment on this. And if it gets shot down then that is okay.

But, anyways, my idea is to keep the light off during the day and turn it on at night.

Would that be okay?

Because then the tank could act as a night light and you could watch your fish as you fall asleep for those that would want to do that.

If you want to look at the tank at night, I would suggest getting a moon light. They sell them online :) It's basically a light white light meant to emulate the moonlight in the wild.

Of course this link is regarding coral reefs, but the moon doesn't JUST shine on reefs at night :P

I may think about doing that. Just because I actually enjoy knowing what my fish may or may not be doing. Thank you Posaune.

Wow, that is very cool! I might have to look more into that. I would LOVE that.

So I've been researching this moonlight thing. I found a really neat one for cheap.
