What is Your Fish's Wierd Behavior

A week ago i got my first fish a firefish... saved the lil guy at the lfs after he just fell short of jumping from tank to tank.
Anyways the last two nights ive noticed with me not having a timer and turning the tank lights off at night at dark once the lights go out in the house(tank lights on) my fish goes to his night time hide out.

Is the fish just tired or does it recognize the timezone in which the house in ran?

Thats my story now lets hear yours

Any substantial decrease in light level may trigger a "hide for the night" mentality.
Weird behavior? Hmm. Well, my clownfish hosts a feather duster worm. Though lately, she's been eyeing the anemone. She even sucked on a tentacle the other day, and wiggled in it today, though she is back to the feather duster now.

I did some reading on it. Sometimes they do this when the current is strong. Just grab hold and relax. Other times, they will do it to make the anemone curl up and lay eggs beneath it. But neither of those seem to apply here.
