Question Do lights make a difference?

I noticed that in a restaurant with a few fish tanks (no Bettas.. just chcilids and angel fish and such) They were barely moving, and there was no light above their tanks.

Also, when Neon was in his 2.5 gallon tank he wasn't too active even though he had warm water and plenty of space. I add him to his 10 gallon with lights, and presto, he was super active zooming around everywhere. He is also more sluggish when the lights are off... I don't know if the transaction from small tank to large tank is what made him energetic, or the lights.... So, do you think a fish tank with lights makes a more active Betta? Just curious.

I'm curious to the answer myself, just moved my Scuzi into a 2.65 gal from something too tiny to mention >.> Unfortunately this one had no light, and no space for a light to be clipped onto it. He's plenty lively, just wondering if I should get him some more light.

I can't say definitively but I just upgraded Harley from a 1 gallon bowl to a 10 gallon tank. It took me a couple days to get the bulbs for the tank but now when they're on he moves around more than before. I'm not sure if its just because he's adjusting to his new tank or because he likes the light, or both. He didn't move around too much in his small bowl but I guess that's too be expected. I have him near a slightly covered window so the daytime light isn't great. The aquarium light is all he gets for the most part.
