Question Underwater lighting

Hi! My name is Char, this is my 1st post but I've been reading this forum for quite awile. Thank you to all of you for teaching me how to properly care for my Betta's. I have two and both are in beautifully decorated 10 gallon tanks. I have one at work and one at home. I know - I've lost my mind! The darn little things are addictive and I want to save them all!! LOL Anyway...

I've been wanting to purchase some underwater lighting for each tank. The tanks look so dark when I turn the lights out and I've become so attached to my little darlings I don't want them to be in the dark. Especially my little guy at work because he's in the dark the most because of the hours I work and on the weekends I don't get to turn the light on during the day.

Does anyone use underwater lighting when the main lights are turned off? If you do... what do you recommend? I'm looking for submersible lighting.

Thanks in advance!

I don't know anything about under water lighting, but having a cycle of light is a good thing.
Is there anyway you could use a timer at work so they can have light longer?

Underwater ("waterproof") lights are doable in most tanks, altho they do emit a certain amount of RF (radio frequency) that may be disturbing to some fish. If you decide to add underwater lights to your tank also make sure they do not emit too much heat as any contact with them may cause discomfort or injury.

I didn't know that Babbling. Thank you for the information. I certainly wouldn't want to do any harm to my little guys.
