I've been dimming my lights with bandanas etc, I want to have it fully bright in there. They have plenty of cover. Does anyone else turn their aquarium lights on without dimming them with something?

I have nothing dimming my lights. Then again I have a 40 watt strip in a 75 so the lights is not too bright. What size tank you have and what type of lights?

Same here... I have always kept a lot of light on my tank since I have a ton of live plants. I got my fish at 3/4 of an inch and they have gotten used to it over time.

I say just let the light alone, your fish will get used to it..

Im running 260 Watts of 10K Lighting Power in my 55 Gallon.
Fish dont mind.
Even when I had My Piranhas, I would run my 300 Watt System, and the Fish didnt mind either. Theyd hide for a little bit, and then Swim Around.
