Do Betta Fish Like Colored Light? Should You Use LED’s?

"Bettas are some of the most popular fish to have in the home thanks to their brightly designed bodies, flowy tails, and ferocious attitudes."

Betta fish require a regular schedule of light and dark to regulate their sleeping patterns.

Betta fish have a love-hate relationship with light. They require an ample amount of light during the daytime while they are awake but prefer it to be pitch black at night so they can get a good night’s sleep.

Bettas prefer natural light in their tank to help them regulate their sleeping pattern and keep them from becoming stressed.

You’re not limited to sunlight with your betta fish, though. You also have the option of using artificial light to keep him happy. Just keep in mind that artificial light will need to be turned off and on manually unless you opt for artificial light with a built-in timer.
