Do tiger barb fish need light at night?
Hey there, Tiger barbs dont need a light on at night. Freshwater fish should have a break from the light at night, it helps them stay in tune with day and night and there fore promotes a healthy fish. Remember that the more u can make ur tank feel like a natural habitat the happier the fish, coz they all have that instinct in them. And they will feel more at home :o) Got any more questions? message me at www.myspace.com/wahbeagle . Cheers!

Do cold water fish need light?
Unless they are blind cave fish, which have no eyes, fish need light. You want a light om an aquarium so you can see the fish to best advantage. It does not need to be a special aquarium light, if a room is light enough for you to move around in, it is light enough for the fish, regardless of temperature. A weird thing may happen if the light comes from the side. Fish orientate themselves to light more than gravity. With strong side lighting they will swim tilted, sometimes almost completely on there sides.

Betta do like LIGHT to be able to distinguish night and day, they also need the warmth, but you can use a heater. betta fish do need light, but it is not good to keep a betta in direct sunlight as it may increase the temperature byy far too much. so just keep it in light at day, or get a lamp.

How many hours a day do tropical fish need to be in light?
Asked in Animal Life
Do angelfish need light?
All tropical fish need light, as they tend to live near the surface around coral reefs. It is no different if the fish is kept in a tropical fish tank. Too much light duration will result in excessive algae growth in a fish tank. Therefore, light duration should be regulated to keep algae growth to a minimum.
