How Much Light Do Fish Need?
In September I moved into an apartment that doesn't have much in the way of natural lighting, so I do not feel that my aquarium is getting sufficient light. I know that fish do not feel happiness or depression as humans do but I would think perhaps their energy levels and health could be affected by good or bad lighting. I do have a general fluorescent hood light on my tank. Is this light good enough? I also sometimes turn on a floor lamp I have near the tank that has a daylight 15-watt CFL bulb installed.
Is there anything else I should do that would make their environment healthy where lighting is concerned, or is what I provide them sufficient?
