Questions on my lighting schedule?

So I have a 29 gallon tank in my room that currently only has a few guppies but will soon have a bristlenose pleco in it. I like to go to sleep with the tank lights on. So my question is, is it okay for the fishes health to have the light on at night but not during the day? all the fish seem to be doing fine. I'm hoping that they would slowly adjust to thinking that when its night time, it's really day time. Is this possible?

What fish?

I have a school of cories and neon tetras in a 10 gallon tank. I was just wondering what other fish I should add?

I wouldn't add any more a 10 gallon is only good for 4-6 fish depending on size.

how much natural light will it get? any issue may be getting too much light allday and night could breed algae. you could look into a moonlight light to use at night.

It gets little to none light during the day. My room stays pretty dark during the day.

Then you will be just fine, fish cant tell time or know that they should sleep at night, as long as they get 8-10 hours of light they dont care if its night or day,

Okay thanks! I just wasn't sure how the BN Pleco would do. And i was just curious if running the light at night could be causing unnecessary stress. I guess I'm glad that it doesn't seem to matter.
