light and dark period for fish????? important?
i may be looking a little too deep into this, but i sometimes I worry about weird things.
ok so here we go.. my fish go into complete darkness around 7-8 pm. since the tank is in my bedroom, sometime ... more than i would like, my wife goes into the room and turns ALL the lights on. it urks me because i really want to keep in line with creating a real environment for my fish, down to making sure that the light and dark cycle is consistent. so my questions is what do other people do about this? is this shocking to fish to go sometimes go from dark to light and back to dark again?
wifey and I are thinking about getting a tv in the bedroom.. this will mean light in the room later into the current dark cycle? show i look at wrapping the tank in a mini curtain so that it stays some want dark?
