My question being: I have a 54Gal corner tank and it sits in the corner of my living room. At the end of one of the paragraphs states "Ensure that the room allows for a minimum of 10 hours of complete darkness each day."
Are we talking complete darkness as in tank lights off? Or are we talking no room lights or no light from the TV? Because honestly unless I was to move the tank to my basement which is totally unrealistic because no one would ever see it including myself, no where in my home has complete darkness for ten hours. I have 4yr old twins which explains that. lol
Would appreciate any advise...
IME just normal room type darkness will be fine. I presume the room lights are off at night.
