I'd have to agree with this, too. I've even had them in tanks with HIDs (HPS
and MV) and they weren't worried.

As with most fish, the level of lighting isn't as important as the
perception of cover when it's needed or wanted. If they know they can get
out of the way of things, it really doesn't bother 'em...
