this is the first time i have had fish tanks with lights. should i turn the lights off at night, or does it really matter?

I always turn mine off at night. usually they have between 9 and 12 hours of it turned on during the day.

Yes, fish need the day/night cycle, like we do.

thanks. now i dont feel so bad. I worried that I was being mean to them by turning their light off at night. so happy that doing that was the right decision.

Oh, I didn't know you needed to turn out the light. I just figured that the hiding spots were the "dark." Thanks for the heads up.

Right now I am doing the same thing that rockstar is doing. I turn the lights on when I get up, and I turn them off when I go to sleep, or aruond 9ish.

By the way, thanks for the replies, this forum has been a lot of help, and the people are so nice. I have learned a lot more about betas in the last 5 days then what I actually thought I knew when I had Alpha.

At the very top of the page, above where it says FishForum.com,on the top left, it should say user cp. That is your control panel. If you go there, it should have where you can edit your signature. It will be under settings and options. Hope this helps.
