Hello beta fish lovers! I'm new to this community and this is my first thread. I know I should just Google my question, but I like fresh opinions on these matters, after all, these fish are our little friends!
I've never needed to ask myself this question regarding light for my past betas because they were in a different part of my house which had natural light shining in, then the inevitable dark, so I would assume that is how a beta likes it.
My new beta, Fernando the second (he's royalty
) is in a place where there's constant shade and in general, hardly no light unless I shine my lamp on the bowl for some artificial light. So I would like to know how much light this fish requires, does it need natural light? lots of light or does it prefer the dark and shady atmosphere. Thanks guys and gals!
