Suddenly turning on tank lights can be shocking to the fish. Imagine as soon as you wake up the sun is shining full force into your EYES through a glass window which enhances the refraction. :D :D

Leave the room lights on for a few minutes before turning on the tank lights. You can also go the slightly costly route to ensuring comfortable power-ups by purchasing a dimmer to act in co-operation with your timer to provide dawn-day progression.

Room lights is the easiest method.

God luck.

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.
