Fish need a day/night cycle (as you said). This is the same for humans; we dont have the sun up all day do we? They need time to rest and/or do whatever they do during the night.

If you dont have a heater, do a water change the night before and add warmer water, but not too hot. Add a black towel to the top to keep heat in and calm the fish. You will need the heater ASAP, so getting it tommorow would be best.
