Should I leave the light on all the time?

Post any questions you have about a turtle indoor setup here. Or if you have a link to your indoor setup picture we would love to see it.

I got the light installed in my set up, but i was wondering if i should leave it on all day, or turn it off only at night, or leave it on for only 4 hours or whatever. Peace and Prosperity to all and i am out!!

This can be answered very simply..
Do you like the light on all day long?
What is the natural environment like for a turtle??
Yes the sun goes down everyday so your light should be turned off every night...

I leave my lights on for 12 hours. They get shut off and the tanks get covered for the night with black sheets. I remove the sheets at 7 a.m. and turn the lights on at 8 a.m. My turtles will not settle down until they are covered for bedtime.
