    I have some tfs next to my lamp. My question is, long term will it damage the paint and stickers? Since the lamp is one of those ecological lamps, i guess not. But it does not hurt to ask does it?

    By ecological do you mean the lamp has a compact florescent light bulb in it? I've been trying to dig up information to find out how much UV light is emitted by a compact florescent bulb vs a regular light bulb.

    Either way I would say that long term exposure would start to affect them yes.

    long term exposure to any current lightbulb will cause damage

    but for some it is longer than others

    It depends on how much the lamp is on. If it is on for an hour or two a day I wouldn't worry too much, but if it is on for several hours to all day then slowly but surely it can have an effect (still nothing like sunlight though).

    Believe it or not, the best way to find it out is to ask in a fish keeping forum.

    Eventually it'll get too it. Agree with defstar and would play it safe.

    Crap

    Gotta move them, then. Would it affect figures that are sealed on the plastic things that are hard to open?

    I imagine that if the light can hit it, the toy could be affected even in the packaging...
