Red Light At Night In Aquarium?

  • I want to get a camera to view my fish overnight. Problem is, most night vision cameras have a small infrared light on them so they can capture images with no light.

    I've read conflicting things on Google. Some say red light is fine at night, others say not. I'm thinking this would be such a small light anyways it wouldn't disturb them that much?

    What are your views?

  • It would depend on two things I believe when you use a red light near a fish tank. How close do you have it to the tank and how big the light is?

    I have read that it doesn't affect freshwater fish and neither does it affect saltwater fish but it can make them more aware of a red light and they would be able to detect a red light more easily.
