Just out of curiosity, has anyone else noticed how much more lively and vibrant the aquarium seems late at night up until earlier in the morning compared to throughout the day/evening? At least that's how my community tank is. My danios are packed tight circling the surface, my mollies/platy's are just doing molly/platy things, the ghost shrimp are hanging off of deco's, my pleco is sifting through the sand, and last but not least my baby eclipse is out and about. (Only growing in there until he reaches 4 inches and will be moved). I have two children and two dogs with lots of neighbors in an apartment building, so generally speaking it is pretty noisy through the day and not all of my fish are tolerant to light or noises. I try to keep my light on for 5 hours a day, with 3 hours of natural room light before dark. This is my favorite time just to sit back and watch my fish before bed time. (3rd shifter).
