Light absolutely impacts color. The guy at angelsplus talked about how 1/2 black angels wouldnt express the trait if raised in the dark.

Wanna see your fish really pop - put them in a tub outside for a summer. Bugs and sunlight really bring out the color.

First of all that is the excellent question.
In my opinion, yes – lightning definitely plays roll in the color of cichlids. Which light is best for different kind of cichlids – I have no idea. That is probably ground for the next big scientific research.
For now, best thing for us, is to do some experiments of our own, change the lights and see how they work on different kind of fish, or move fish from tank to tank with different lighting.

So I say to her……There is plenty of stuff at the house for the baby to eat!!!! I REALLY need this fish……

I am going to guess yes but with no personal facts.

I think Mario mentioned he had done studies where he used to different lights with angel fish fry and it effected the out come and color of how they grew up.

Our last speaker noted that black backgrounds causes speckling on discus and so she uses a very light blue almost white background.

So color and brightness appears to effect fish.

I picked up 3 watt led lights at costco for like $20 dollars for a three pack and they work great.

Here is a dumb question, but does lighting help peacocks color up, or improve appearance.

I have a few tanks full of peacocks, with no lights, just ambient light, and my males are very drab.
