It may be a bit late in the game since I already bought this tank, but I wanted to know if anybody else has the 3.5 gal Top Fin tank with colored led lights. It was on sale at Petsmart- 19.99 with filter. I chose not to install the filter since it's in my daughter's room and the fish is kind of freaked out by currents.
My 6 yr old is over the moon with having her own pet fish in her room and named him Shimmer. I don't need much convincing to get a new tank lol, so here we are. He will get a heater in the fall but right now my house is at 78 so he should be ok.
My main question is about the lights. I did not realize there are 18 settings for the colored LED lights, including light shows. The light is not strong at all, in fact it would not support any real plants, however I worry that it may stress out the fish. My daughter likes the setting where colors change slowly and watches it before she falls asleep. I turn it off for the night but the color show is probably going to be on about an hour a day. Would the fish be OK? He flares at his reflection all that time.
