My yellow striped maroon clown sleeps laying on its side in my biggest rock anemone ( I have 3)
The domino juvenile damsel used to sleep there.
My fish have the silliest most ironic characteristics.

They don't seem to see red very well as that color is filtered out in the first 30 feet of seawater. You can use a white light, just narrow the beam down to a small point. My rocks are teeming with copepods and it makes me kind of itch looking at all of them.

I like to shine a red laser into the cavities of the LR, you can see all those tiny busy buzzing around in there.

I found this guy whom I didn't even know was in there. I look every night when I get home from work lol. I actually found out last night that I have 2 bristleworms about this size. Almost grabbed my mushroom frag to move it back where it goes (bulldozing turbos) and saw him poke out the other side. That woulda ruined my night lol

The laser says not to point it at people, says nothing about fish :p

And remember, please do not look into laser with remaining eyeball.

I actually do this with my freshwater tanks all the time (For the Khuli loaches someone else mentioned...heh). Now I'm going to have to go to a toy store and get a "Real Army Flashlight" with the red light.

Fish have eyes...I work with lasers and even the pointer lasers (under 5mw) can burn a human, or fish retina in an instant. I would use a small pen light and use a red filter if you have one. Otherwise, a bit of light won't disturb em much. I night dive and use loads of light and don't seem to disturb the residents.
