I have two fluorescent lights in my 10 gallon tank. I also have some live plants both grown and in the bulbs currently but are going to be growing in my tank. I know the fish need lighting during the day. Would keeping my light on at night be a good idea? I would just not use the light during the day if I could keep the lights on in the hood on all night. Would this be good for the growing and grown live plants as well?
Agree, and you need a fairly regular schedule of day/night in the aquarium, both for fish and plants. The "night" must be total darkness.
