Flash Photography and Fish?

I've been taking a fair number of pictures of my tanks and my fish lately, probably 1-3 dozen a week. I have to use a flash to get the photos to come out well, as my camera doesn't take good photos in low light conditions.

Does flash photography hurt fish? I assume it annoys them a bit, but they never react or seem frightened...

I've never heard of them being affected by it. I assume flashing it over and over again might do something, but that'd drive anyone mad.

That is a good question and i would also like to know the answer. I too need a flash to take pix of my tanks. Rarely is the light bright enough for a quick enough lens speed to catch them without the flash.

It might annoy them, but I don't think it hurts them.

More likely, it was the DB level
