with the painted glass fish i really bought it cause i like the "see through" look of it, not for its coloring. i'd actualy like to pick up another glass fish or two; can you get them without the coloring easily?

anyways... im going to stay away from the black light just to play it safe.
Yes, the Petco here always has glass cats here. And they are not dyed. They are a pretty cool fish. Another common name for them is Ghostfish.

possibly. and possibly as the word spreads, less and less stores will stock them. many lfs stock according to what sells. if more and more people acquire the knowledge and insight, change happens.

a lfs close stopped selling dyed fish because enough people stopped buying. is that because this site was so great and passed on the info? probably not, but it does make a difference.

There has already been one warning to keep this thread on-topic, which is....
"Blacklight...will the uv light harm my fish?

will it interupt my "dark cycle" for my plants?"

If we can't stay on topic, this thread will be locked.

I agree that if you aren't completely sure the light won't harm the fish then it is a good idea to not use it. Why bother taking chances.
Good choice IMO.

I feel like this on the light on the tank. If your just going to leave the light on for a few hrs. It should be fine as the plants will still have more then enought time in the night to do there night cycle. A plant only needs 3 to 4 hrs of complete darkness to do the photosevphses { I know the spellings not right on that LOL} Even with all the light out at night in a home setting they never get complete darknes.
There's not much difernts between the LED lights and black lights other then I beleve one puts out more UV lighten then the other. Don't quote me on that. LOL

I was told that the uv from blacklights bothers fish and that the moonlights sold for fish are the only ones you should use. I have no experience with this/just what I was told
