    Hi guyz i have a question to ask, if one whole day we nv switch on the light for our aquatic plants, what will happen to them? Is it ok for the plants without any light for just one day?

    Today too busy with work, forget to call back home to remind my family member to switch on the light....

    Anyway my tank consists of mainly japonica n various crypt.

    Invest in a timer... it costs less than $20 and you can control your lighting periods as erractically as you want.

    Bear in mind not to turn on and off lights as you wish, plants need to get adjusted to lighting periods so they can grow.

    Not sure if they still sell cheap timers at Carrefore @ Suntec.
    I used to get it for $9.90 and they even bundle in a 2-way adaptor.

    Timer costs can range quite a bit depending on where you buy them. The cheapest that I have seen so far is at Giant at Turf City. If I recall correctly, I saw one at only 7 bucks.

    I would suggest you invest in a decent timer.

    No point saving a few bucks to create more problem.

    Just treat it as a 'Rainy Siesta'. Sometimes it rain for a whole day with cloudy skies.

    even if u do a complete blackout for 3 days, the plants will still be ok. only thing is all the leafs will try to reach the surface of the water which in turn blockout the light below if u don't cut them away.
