Too much light can cause algae to grow in the tank.. Especially in a new tank...
Its recommended no more than 10 hrs a day...
Fish need darkness for their sleep cycles... They actually lay down in their spots and rest very still and breathing slow at night... It scared me the first time I saw all the fish laying on the gravel motionless... Didnt know they "sleep"..
