Does colour changing LED lights put fish in stress?

I have a 100 l aquarium with colour changing LED. I saw sudden restlessness in behaviour when i turned on the sequential colour changing LED. Thought came to my mind if its putting my fishes into stress. Any one experienced the same?Click image for larger version

Yes certainly they do especially the RGB when it changes the tones the fish can feel it and will definitely put them in stress. I suggest to keep it white. So they don't lose their color of being stressed and eventually die.

I know that if lights flash they think it's a storm and go into hiding and stress so I'd imagine it's the same for changing colour quickly.

Ok....that doesnt help me lol

But if it a led fixture with a 24/7 mode or one that lets you customize the spectrum it is fine.

Sure if you sit there and constantly fiddle with it you could aggravate a fish.

Most fish get used to our fixtures over time.
