Most powerhead controllers use a night feature that slows down the current at night. My Tunzes and controller had that. Even when I had a Wavemaster with 3 powerheads hooked into it it had a night feature that slowed the current. This one.. Red Sea Wavemaster Pro Wave Maker.

It's totally fine to have slow flow at nite. Easier for the fish to rest too.

I've seen my fish move to caves as night. If fish need to rest, I'm sure they'll move to the nooks and cranies of your tank with slower flow.
