    Tried the lightning setting for the very first time on my Aquabeam Multi-Controller last night (after a trip to the pub :D). I sat there being amazed by the light show in the dark and hope that my fish weren't too freaked out by it.

    The documentation states that it is designed/is there to encourage breeding. Has anyone had any positive experience of this with their own fish?

    My wife thought it highly amusing as I was adding the thunder noises in the background and in anticipation of the mock lightning strikes :risas3::risas3::risas3::risas3:

    i have radions with the lightning fuction
    they reckon if you do it during a water change its a trigger for spawning

    however the lights dim prior to the storm
    and my fish all go to bed / hide
