I'd have to say that in captivity, fish will adapt and are known to adjust readily to schedules different from their wild ancestors. It's not surprising either that some nocturnal ancistrus like the one I have forage the bottom even with lights on.

As I said, the same thing will happened to your clowns once they are adjusted.
Plecs are nocturnal in the wild but will pretty much adjust to the new schedules.:)

Thanks for the facts. I have 2 in there now and soon to be 3. My subtrate isnt that bright. Just go and take a look of my tank in the freshwater aquarium pic's....They always hide during the day and i feed in the morning when I get up & go to work and the lights on and there not out so they dont eat. But at night they are alway's out and i drop an algea tab in every night and you can here them just clicking away eating it. Also have cucumber in there right now and there seems to be the middle's of both of them eaten away so who knows

I do feed bloodworms about 1 - 2 times a week. And once I shot some bloodworms in there hiding spot and I could see them going crazy & eating them right up.So i hoped that would make them want to come out. Next time @ the lfs I will be sure to get at least 1 more....
