NO problem, I appreciate the honesty. Actually I was going for the more sci-fi fish tank in my design knowing full well the naturalists were not going to like it. But if you think about a humans natural habitat is living in caves and huts. Only through the modern era our natural habitat has changed to cities and homes. Fish are smart too, they can be naturalize to a 21'st century tank.
The lights are necessary for me to see the fish tanks. Because I live in a small (and expensive) high rise condo there is no window in my living room, only the bedroom. Which means the tanks are pitch BLACK without any LED lights. Also I run the hood lights on a timer for 7 hours daily and since I am constantly in and out I want to be able to appreciate the tank whenever I can not just during 12-8pm.
Fish don't mind it really plus I love the shut all lights off in my living room and just watch both tanks in the dark, it is quite relaxing.
