ID:	309653My Black & White Ocellaris Clownfish turn pale when I close the light. I'm worried they could be sick or something. They turn back to black and white after I open the lights.

Fish will pale as they Ďsleepí at night. Sounds normal as you havenít described anything unusual.

paling out at night is a natural form of defense , we know it as camouflage it helps them blend into the rocks to keep themselves hidden from predators as they sleep,
you will also see this paling if the fish is highly stressed.
