How necessary are lights in the tanks??

I was just wondering if lights were needed or not. All my tanks are well lit during the day. And at night there is a little light from the kitchen. Hopefully someone can help :)

I'm no expert but i'm assuming that should be fine if the tanks are receiving natural light during the day, because it would still be enough to keep the sleep/wake cycle of the fish in check. It's no different from being out in the wild

Unless you are keeping live plants, lights aren't necessary. Just make sure the Betta isn't in a closet and it is fine lol.
