I changed my lights today from the cheap incandescent bulbs to 10 watt fluorescent bulb so that my plants will grow better. Now my neon tetras are going nuts, they are breathing fast and kinda hiding under my plants and stuff.
Should i be worried or not.
i have two 15 watt flours on my 55 gal tank, and i have 8 neons who are alright, i'd say they arent use to that much light, make sure they have cover (plants and caves) and over time they'll just get use to it

my mollies did the same thing when i put on a light after not having one for a month or two. i would just ween them on to it, if you are worried about stressing them. start off a an hour one day, two or three the next, so on and so forth. they'll get used to it.
