I just saw my raphael catfish for the first time in awhile the other night. But I found out where his "den" is and I rearranged it a little so that now when he is sleeping in his little den I can see inside.

All they need is to get used to the light, be it moonlight or room light. Should you be considering moonlights, red LED is best ime. I "measured" by how spooked my fish were when going from darkness to blue and red LED and cold cathode moonlights.

*it's easiest to see them under blue cold cathode, btw. "Best" above is with fish in mind.

I'll add my vote for Polypterids. Of course....they're my overall favorite fish regardless of when they're active!
