    What colors are they changing to and from?
    Also, how quickly does it cycle the color changes?

    lastly, are these LED's above and shining down into the tank to supply the light, or in the tank shining up?

    If you've got it set to a "rave party" then yes, it'll have adverse affects.
    If you have slow transition, then it'll be "alright". not ideal because in nature they aren't getting pure red/blues/greens in the first place

    We had one of those that came with a tank that said that it was safe for neon tetra, but they didn't like it. It was not adjustable and the colors changed a bit too quickly for my tastes. It was pretty, but it seemed to make the neons too nervous. We shut it off after the first day and the neons were fine after that. The Ghost Shrimp didn't seem to care either way.
    Observer of: Shy Zoro the ghost shrimp, 13 neon tetras whom we cannot tell apart, one Gold Mystery Snail named Blaze (cuz he'd win any race), a delta tail blue betta male (Train), female betta (named Missy), a bristle nose Pleco (Play), as well as 3 cats, and a school of dogs.

    +1 to the above.

    if anything, shine them from the top.
    when fish have two lightsources, they can get confused to what is up vs down. this confusing causes stress which can really mess w/ the fish and possibly causes disease.

    this is the only light source, a Round tank with a clear tube in the center that supplies the light, might be able to rig something up to shine the light from the top
