I do a Secondary (I know I know). But my question is do I have to keep it in the dark to prevent any off flavors or is light ok?

Thanks

Just like the woman, keep her in the dark!

Always keep your beer in a dark area, not exposed to light. You can also put a t-shirt or towel around the carboy to keep the light out.
