Hi everyone!

Just curious, is it harmful to let the shrimps rest throughout the night in moonlight? My moon or night light is red and blue.

I always see them swimming about even at night, never stopping to rest or anything like that. Won’t they tire themselves out?

They will be just fine, does your light automatically switch between the 2?

Ah, alright! I've been worried that they wouldn't be able to sleep under moonlighting.
No, I have to do it myself. Usually I would wake up and turn on the white light.

My algae is taking awhile to grow ever since the water change to prepare the tank for the shrimps. :huh:
