I see the same kind of thing regardless of light left on or not. If the fish think its time to sleep they will go into sleep mode and the color gradually reduces.
The other instance I have seen is shock and that can take days to weeks for the fish to recover fully. . I wouldn't recommend trying to replicate, though the fish thankfully survived the ineptitude that shocked them white.Mucky
Unusually I have nothing more to add...

Pencilfish have two distinctive color's for night and day but you have to turn the light on in the middle of the night to witness this and half shock your fish. I've never done this in case your wondering, just going by photo's and litature.Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence.
