I never turn on the light in my hood. My p's hate it. Is that bad for the tank leaving it off all the time.?
All my lights are off on my P tanks. I use natural lighting. Ps live in murky waters without much light anyway.azeral26 said:I read the post up top.....using red bandana. =). I created this post because I was thinking of not using a light at all.
In my 75 , I went with a 3 phase lighting setup. In the area of the aquarium where I have plants, I used a dark red bandana under my light. In the middle I used a yellow bandana, and torwards the far end I used nothing to dim the light. They seem to like it ok.phreakah said:i have 110 watts of power compact on my tank and i dont even have any live plants in there... the p's actually seem to like it with light rather than without it.. the light seems to make them more active and colorful... try putting the lights on a timer for a week to see if they adjust.. they might start to like it
