Has anyone tried different colors of lights,and if so,what kinds did your p's like.I was wondering about using different colors for viewing.Maybe something that would bring them out like they do with the lights off.
Just the good ol regular lighting for me.. no coloration here. However i do have one tank with red lights with a pair of cons in it... dosnt seem to affect them any... but then again they are cons and they are tougher than nails
I use one tube light, with a slight reddish tint. They say it would have a positive effect on plant growth. I don't know if it indeed has any effect on whatever (since I never tried another tube light), but my plants do pretty well, and my p's seem to be very happy... Also, a reddish tint is not as bright as a pure white light, which is easier on the eyes (I can't stand the look of a very brighly lit tank: it looks unnatural in my opinion), and makes the fish look better.
hey, I once saw a tank that had beams of light streaming through different parts of the tanks. I think it may have been done by poking holes in a hood, or by spotlights.
The cool thing about it was it lit up the tank like if you were looking at it from underwater in a river.
