i saw a lot of replies making it look like i had NO idea what proper lighting is, etc. based on the question i asked. my question had NOTHING to do with lighting with a healthy betta, it was for a SICK betta, which i did get the answers right away and like always, peoples passion got in the way and they saw something that did not met their own "personal" preference so they make it out to where if someone does it do it THEIR way, they are wrong.... just saying =]

No one was talking about you or how you light your tanks. The whole light 24/7 was an offshoot that had nothing to do with the original question or the original poster.. it was about "people" who think leaving lights on 24/7 is acceptable... one of the common misconceptions of fish keeping.

And what Nocho said wasn't sensitive.. she was simply using an analogy from human perspective to relate to the fish and why darkening the tank would relieve stress.

Nocho was giving an example. A rather simple example we can all relate to and/or imagine easily, it had nothing to do with dumbing you down.

I just wanted to mention leaving lights on 24/7... because I have heard of people doing it, and I'm like "What??" No one should leave the lights on 24/7, but it shows that not everyone knows this either.

My neighbor keeps her tank lights on 24/7 and it doesn't seem to bother the fish. Her betta at least has a cave to go into.

I guess I was too straightforward...I'm more worried about the fish without those darker-places to hide in. If they were exposed to light 24/7, with no place to go into, what would the consequences be?

I imagine the fish would be quite stressed. I know how hard it is for me to sleep with the light on I imagine its similar to any animal.

Eventually after a while I'm sure the fish would get used to it but at what cost?

I know one thing for sure, my bettas do NOT like being in a dark room and have someone turn the lights on. They act disoriented or something.
