So i know Corydoras dont like light and hide from it. Especially the white bright lights. I was reading about colored lights,but they are incandescent. Says Corys would probably like the dark night blue kinda light. My friend suggested getting gels from a music store and put in on the lid. There is a music store nearby and they sell them pretty cheap. Has anyone ever used them in their aquarium? And do corys really like that lol.The tank they are in now has a flourscent bulb,but I wasnt gonna turn it out b/c I know theyd hide then. But I thought with a dark tint,itd probably look really cool.

I've no idea where you're going here with odd lighting...but a couple general comments on corydoras and light. Corys (and all fish with a few exceptions) are biogically programmed to normal daylight (10 hours) and total darkness (10 hours) every day (the other 4 hours being dawn and dusk obviously). The overhanging vegetation in their natural habitat means they are not normally exposed to direct sunlight, so hiding places provided by wood, aquatic rooted plants and floating plants are advisable. As long as the tank light is not too bright they will do fine. In tanks with mega light one has to be careful (4 watts per gallon and higher, or T5HO type bright lighting).

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
