So we have a bunch of these little friends en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Splitfin at the Academy, they're the last stop on my chum rounds.

Does anyone know how well understood the bioluminescent bacteria is? I was told that the reason they're kept in a near-dark tank is that bright light harms the bacteria. Are they sensitive to all wavelengths equally or could you illuminate them with like infrared light for example?
