They should be fine. Most fish shouldn't be kept in total darkness and in nature the moonlight does provide enough penetration for fish to recognize predators.

Use a flashlight with a red lens, they won't be spooked.

The blue lights won't keep them away as long as they aren't overbearing. Most lunar lights shouldn't be a problem if used sparingly.

I dont use any nite time lighting. I do however have my computer about 6 ft away so I guess they get a little light from that.
