My tank is situated as such that it gets indirect sunlight much of the afternoon.
I remember reading that a tank should get 10-12 hours of "light" per day. I am just setting up a timer for my NO
lights and I am wonderwing how much to leave the lights on. I'd love them to be on when I am home in the evening, but I am not sure how many hours I can have since the tank does get some sunlight.
How much "complete" darkness (i.e. no overhead lights or sunlight) is ideal for the tank?
