Clowns not eating??????????????

I got four healthy looking clowns about 12 days ago, and I haven't observed them eating yet. They still act a little shy when I am close to the tank, and one of them pokes around a little at feeding time(once a day), but I'd feel more at ease if they pigged out like my other fish do. I've offered flake, tubifex, wafers, and shrimp tablets, but they just don't seem to go for it. I've noticed that my guys seem to be nocturnal. Is it possible they only eat after dark? I'm also going to try some zuchinni tonight. I'd really appreciate any input
