the sun hits my tank for about an hour every morning when the sun rises and it’s my favorite time to watch the fish. they seem to glow in the sunlight. my snakeskin gourami pair was looking extra good this morning snacking on krill flakes.


my goldfish look good too


share your natural sunlit tanks, i think fish look best in sunlight.

it’s good for the fish too! i believe that just like other animals fish really need to see some sun, natural sunlight has a lot of benefits that we may not even notice in fish more than just improving their color. it would be cool to see some studies or experiments done on fish kept in sunlight and artificial light and seeing the differences in overall health between the two.

Agreed. I have a tank sitting in an east facing window and gets a couple hours of morning light every day. I love waking up in the morning to sit in front of it with my coffee for a bit. It gets some algae here and there, but nothing I'm uncomfortable with. And the vallisneria in the back grows like a weed with that sun every day.
