Some of their tanks have no light whatsoever except for the light from the building. What practices can we take from these places and apply to our home aquariums?
1,000 watt halides wouldnt be blinding uless you were staring at the bulb for a minute, i think its common sense not to as it would be like staring at the sun. the aquarium exhibits that dont have light most likely contain deep(er) water species that in their natural habbitat dont see light.
