Howdy folks, I'm thinking of lighting my pond at night. Was wondering if you guys prefer above water lights or under water lights. Not looking for esthetics, strictly for visibility. I would like to see my fish at night!
Howdy. I recently bought my first lights, they're submersible but they float so I have them suspended at the top of the water (mostly) aiming down. So far I like them - they're the ones that can change color, not very pricey. This was at dusk today, the fish were all hiding at the moment but if they weren't they'd be visible.
I've found that the inexpensive solar lights work pretty well. They don't light up the whole pond, but if you place them at different levels, you can see your fish as they pass through the beams. You can place them either underwater or above, which allows you to experiment with what works best.
