Very bright lights aren't too good or them, the olor doesn't have much affect, red would be the best, its the light they are least sensitive to.

In general, bright lights will make your piranhas slightly more skittish. Although they probably will not have any negative effect on the health of the piranha, they will probably be more enjoyable if they are made more comfortable.

Some say that they can eventually get used to the light, but I prefer a slightly darker tank anyways.

As for the color, I would suggest regular white lighting. I'm not sure how colored lighting would effect them but I like to keep it as natural as possible.
