You might consider a dimmer, nightlight type light instead of the normal bright tank light. The betta will survive the light, turn it on for your husband.Up until recently, I kept my aquarium light off at night for our male betta. But my husband, who is in home hospice, is comforted when light is on at night. How will it affect our betta?
a dimmer for my husband or for the tank?You might consider a dimmer, nightlight type light instead of the normal bright tank light. The betta will survive the light, turn it on for your husband.
thank youMy thoughts and prayers go out to you and your husband.
What about a blue light at night? My minnows are much less active with the blue light than they are with the white light.
If I have the light off during the day, there is still daylight. Does it have the same effect on bettas as tank light?Sorry to hear about your husband.
Leaving your light on 24/7 coukd stress your fish and cause and algae outbreak. You could only have your light turned on overnight for your husband and leave it off during the day or if he only needs it before he sleeps and doesnt wake up during the night you can change the schedule so it turns on and off later. My lights dont get turned on till 2.30pm and go off at 10.30pm as id rather have the lights on at night then during the day when im at work
I personally wouldnt worry about the ambient light my fish never seem disturbed by it and Its probably better then having the tank light on 24hrs.If I have the light off during the day, there is still daylight. Does it have the same effect on bettas as tank light?
Lol! A dimmer (less bright) light on the tank. I don't think they make dimmers...or volume control knobs for husbands...do they??
I don't know about stand alone dimmers, but some lights have dimmer settings on the remote. Three of mine have that. It's hard to tell because of the office lights, but the dim effect is much more pronounced in a darkened room.I'm not thinking straight. I didn't know they made dimmers for tank lights.
