I'm amazed the damsel jumped, they're not really known for that, even when I turn mine into a zombie by turning the lights in the living room on too late at night it just kind of listlessly blows around in the current.

Pretty weird to see a fish just floating in backwards-loops along with my tank's gyre lol, caught me by surprise the first time.

Mine are in a lower flow tank, so it appears more like they are just asleep, even if they were awake when the lights came on.  They have done this for more than a decade; and no, I don't ramp up my T5 lights.  It usually takes just a few minutes for them to start to behave normally.

Ah see, the damsel sleeps in caves, it will literally come out from the cave in stress colors and float, wide-eyed and backwards around the tank until I turn the lights off XD

Hmmmm that may have done it. Have a timer so lights click in at full in the mornings. It did seem a little skittish at lights on.

 

Cujo is still swimming around. Have seen it chilling in the wavemaker flow several times before perching on my Hammer....

Not sure when your lights come on.  However, my yellow clown goby would be almost white when the lights first came on.
