Question black light safe?

Today I placed a black light along the bottom back of my fish tank. My question is... Is it safe for fish?
I plan on using it about a couple hours every night just for looks.

-thx

GloFishģ Fluorescent Fish Care
They say you can run it for a couple hours for glofish, so im assuming since glofish are just modified zebra danios, they should be able to handle the light for a few hours a night.

GloFish are zebra danios that have jellyfish genes inserted into their DNA. I don't think a black light will hurt the fish, especially if you only use it for a few hours a day.
