    why not just change your background picture?
    Move your deco stuff around... or buy new deco stuff, maybe a new plant. But food coloring is not made for fish.. sorry

    My guess is it would damage their gills. Just because something is safe for humans, it doesn't mean it's safe for fish.

    Hi jamin_rb,
    If your intent is to change the colour of the water. you might wanna try to change the coulour of the lighting. This can be done by pasting sulophon paper to the light. Which might give you the same effect.

    cellophane -- is thin plastic which can come in a variety of colors. I am not sure where it is sold at.. you could try an art store. Make sure your light doesnt get to hot as this stuff can melt.

    You'll have to make sure the cellophane doesn't touch the bulb or it might melt.

    You can also buy blue bulbs that are made specifically for aquariums.

    On my tanks I have the standard bulbs that came with my light fixtures and I got tired of them emitting a yellowish light. So I just took some aluminum foil, colored it blue with a sharpie marker and put it behind the bulb. It makes the tank have a very slight blue color, but mainly just cancels out that yellow.
