what effect do lights have on the fish? we usually have the light on during the night and have it off during the day... does it really matter if they have a light on them all the time?

Yes. The lights will effect your fish. Living the lights on all the time will cause you fish unnecessary stress. Some fish prefers dimmed lighting and will not feel at home in to bright setups. Other fish wants strong light to feel at home. There are however no fish that want the light on all of the time.

The kind of lighting you keep in the aquarium will also effect the color your fish displays.
