Clown fish

Hey guys. I think my clowns may b scared of the dark. I usually leave a blue bulb running over night but ive not been able to catch my clowns snoozing. So i switched it off and the clowns went mad. Bouncing off rocks and the glass. Left it off for couple mins and they didnt settle. So now it stays on. Tried it a few times but same result :/

Is there anyway you can keep the room lights low, or medium low and then turn off your tank lights? Then eventually turn off tank lights and room lights

Yeah. I had the room lights on low. Mayb it will just take time for them to adjust. Prob doesnt help that the eel comes out when lights go out
