- - Lights off? (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/beginner-planted-aquarium/lights-off-17129/)
Ok I need a really quick answer, it would be awesome if someone could give me a hand asap.
I didn't think about it until right before I had to leave, But I'm going to be gone for like a day and a half, and no one can come here. So should I turn the lights off? wouldn't that be kind of harmful to my plants??
THANK YOU! :D
Just buy an automatic timer for your light.
I'd leave them on. I've been out of time for a few days at a time and have left the lights on the entire time.
I love my timers. I got mine at Walmart for about $5 each. But if you don't have time to pick one up I would just leave the lights on since it's only a day and a half.
Agreed on the timers- radio shack, the hardware store, even IKEA sell them. If you don't have a chance to pick one up though, leave the lights off.
I agree that you should leave them off. Very little consequence of doing so where leaving them on can stress the fish and possibly cause an algae bloom.
