How do Marlin and Nemo sleep because i didn't.

Hi Guys
We now have Marlin and Nemo in the tank as of yesterday, they were very frisky, they ate well then it was time for bed. About 2 hrs after i shut off the I went down to check up on them and found Marlin in the bottom corner positioned vertically and Nemo on his side at the surface both doing a very slight wiggle. Needless to say I checked on them every hour and found them in the same spots doing the same thing. I turned on the light this morning waited 30 minutes then fed them, they ate up everything appear perfectly happy wobbling away together. Is this normal behavior for Percula Clowns? If it is (they have a strange sense of humor), it aint funny, I was worried about them all night.

Yep, the way they swim is how they got the name, because they look clownish.
