the way i sort of do that without shocking the fish is i have the room light go on first and sort of add a dimmer light to the tank then like 30 minutes later have the fish tank light kick on. it seems to work
Then I saw it. I saw a mom who would die for her son. A man who would kill for his wife. A boy, angry and alone. Laid out in front of him, the bad path. I saw it. And the path was a circle. Round and round. So I changed it.
