PostSubject: time of lights on your bristlenose and catfish aquariums....   Sat Jan 15, 2011 7:05 pm

I have mine on about the same length of time in the tank with my albino's.......

Though I do know some who do not have the light on at all, and there are other's who have it on for about 4-6 hours....

let's see what others think...

light doesnt really stress them out. They are nocternal, so they will hide when the lights are one, when the lights are out they come out. Most bristlenose live in a community tank which is lit for at least some time.
