    Actually we've used these before for fun effects on our planted tanks. I've even seen youtube videos by people who have used those dioder things. I think Solid Gold on youtube has a video on it.

    I use a solar powered LED 'jar of fireflies' sitting on top of my tank at night (it has a all glass lid). It gives off a very soft bluish light that kind of reminds me of moonlight that is behind moving clouds. The fish don't seem to mind and sleep right under it most nights.

    Sure.

    This is a really cool little jar. It has a sensor on top so that is shuts off when the sun comes up or if a light gets turned on. It's usually brightest right after it's fully charged or a battery change. The solar charge lasts a night or two, the battery charge lasts 4 to 5. I usually dim it a little with a folded hand towel in front of the lamp, that way it's less bright in the room and I can see the fish better.
