Lights??

Okay, so I just got a veilteil orange betta today and I bought a tank along with him. But it came with a light, is it okay for a betta to have a light over their tank or should I go without it?

It is okay :)

I currently have one tank with a light and one without. The light goes out about an hour before I go to bed to settle the fish down.

The tank without the light will have a lamp near it (and also some of the light from the other tank),

It's advised to make sure the light is not often too much because it ruins a fish's day-night schedule and can stress them.

So since its nighttime, I should leave it off?
