Is this normal for ember tetras?

AlphaFish

So I've had these embers for a while. I usually turn their lights off at 11 PM and turn them on in the morning (+sunlight). Some would say that it's too much light, but my floaters take a bit of the light from the lights and the sunlight is somewhat stopped by curtains. The point is, I want to get rid of the bad habit of turning their lights off late and yesterday I turned them off at 8 PM. When I checked back on them with a flashlight they were all faded and dizzy. Back in the morning everything was normal again. Do they lose their color when sleeping or does changing the light hours stress them out?

Quite normal for colours to fade when resting. Do they colour back up and act normally when the lights are back on?

Yes, they do.
